Yes the lack of a metro staiton is bad and if they are going to close the current airport, why build now, there not much of a point. Hopefully they will have a metro connection to the new airport, even if Metro Sul do Tejo. Although it would be good if the Lisbon Metro went south of the Tagus.

Here comes another resurrected thread... post updates and developments about Lisbon's main (and future) airport here so that we can have a stronger coverage from Portugal's capital.

Lisbon's main airport has a metro station since 2012. The new airport was postponed because of the crisis. However they will use an existing airbase (Montijo) as a second airport for lowcost airlines:Montijo airbase (google maps)

What is the interior like, and how far you can go with Lisbon's Metro to and from the airport on the same line?

The station (Aeroporto) is located at the end of the RED LINE (12 stations). The line goes to the city center, it takes about 20 minutes from the airport to the last station (S. Sebastiγo). The station is simple with clean design: photo 1 The walls have some cartoons of famous portuguese people: photo 2

Just two quick questions:

- What is the frequency of the Red Line connecting the Airport with San Sebastiγo (peaks, off-peaks, and weekends), and what would be a typical train length operating the line (like 3-, 5-, 8-, or 10-car trains)?
- Given the map you have, is the Metro and the national rail network connected in any way or form at Santa Apolonia Station (like no need to change trains at that station to continue on to and from the Green Line)?

As for your first question: usually subway trains have 6 cars (two 3 car units attached), on weekends they change it to a single 3 car unit (this goes for all lines except the Green one where you always have single 3 car units). Sometimes even on weekends the trains run with a 6 car configuration so it's a matter of luck atually (especially when there's some event in the city like a soccer game or a music festival). For the frequencies you can go to this page: http://metro.transporteslisboa.pt/in...ntre-comboios/
it's in portuguese but i think you'll figure out the time schedule, the column you're looking for is the last one (on the left you have the time and on the right the frequency).

Answering your second question: the train stations is located at ground level, the subway station is just beneath it, you just have to follow the signs and take the elevator or the stairs to the under level (and you have to change trains, the subway and the national rail trains are completely different). As a side note, if you want to go from the national rail network as you put it to the Green Line you need to exit your train at Santa Apolonia train station, get the subway train at the end of the Blue Line (for that you'll need to pay for a new ticket if you don't have a "VIVA VIAGEM" green recharchable card already or you can use it and buy just a trip on the subway system - it'll cost you 1.40€ plus a 50 cents fee for a new card if you need one) and change at Baixa-Chiado subway station for the Green Line.

Feel free to ask anything if you need further assistance on this matter

[B] There is already date for the first direct flight between China and Portugal [/ B]


There will be three frequencies per week. Decision goes against Portugal's efforts to attract more Chinese tourists





It is about to uproot the direct air link between China and Portugal. The start of flights will be on July 26 of this year, Beijing Capital Airlines announced today. A decision that goes against Portugal's efforts to attract more Chinese tourists.


The flight will have three frequencies per week - Wednesday, Friday and Sunday - between the city of Hangzhou, on the east coast of China, and Lisbon, with a stop in Beijing, the agency Lusa has announced the marketing department of the Chinese airline.


Beijing Capital Airlines wants to start a fourth frequency, but it has not yet been approved by the Chinese Ministry of Aviation.


The flight between China and Portugal will be made by the model 330-200 of Airbus, one of the largest commercial passenger aircraft of the European construction company, with capacity for XXX passengers.


Beijing Capital Airlines is one of the subsidiaries of the Chinese group HNA, a shareholder of TAP through the Atlantic Gateway consortium and the Brazilian company Azul.


Ctrip, the main Chinese travel research engine, was already including the flight in the results today, with the round trip price set at 6,400 yuan (870 euros).
Chinese tourists triple


Over the past three years, the number of Chinese tourists visiting Portugal has tripled to 183,000. It should increase "exponentially" with the opening of the direct connection. This is at least the expectation of the Secretary of State for Tourism, Ana Mendes Godinho.


The Chinese who arrive in Portugal are always channeled through another door in Europe, namely through Spain (...), which means that they spend few nights in Portugal. "


The Secretary of State spoke to Lusa in Beijing, Mendes Godinho, saying that the main goal is "to reverse this trend."


China is already the world's largest emitter of tourists and, according to official statistics, 135.1 million Chinese have traveled out of mainland China in 2016, up 12.5% ​​over the previous year.


The increasing purchasing power and ease of obtaining visas for many countries explains the rapid increase in the number of Chinese tourists.


According to the World Tourism Organization, the Chinese are also the tourists who spend the most: last year alone they left 246 billion euros across borders.


To accompany this growing flow, Turismo de Portugal has, since 2014, been a permanent representation in Shanghai, the economic "capital" of China.


Portugal also has nine visa centers in the Asian country, distributed by the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Chengdu, Shenyang, Wuhan, Fuzhou, Guangzhou.
