    Bus from the airport to downtown

    by Avieira67 Updated Apr 14, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unfortunatelly there is no a public transportation linking Ponta Delgada to the airport. Nowadays, there is a shuttle bus provided by UTC company.
    Anyway, if you go as far as the old airport building (1km away) you will find a bus stop. From this point to the city centre is 3 km. Besides local buses, line A minibus has a regular service, from 07:30 to 19:30, on weekdays. It is the cheapest way to reach the city centre and costs only 35 EUR cents.

    Infelizmente não há um transporte público que ligue Ponta Delgada ao aeroporto. Atualmente há um autocarro expresso da companhia UTC.
    De qualquer modo, se caminhar até ao Antigo edifício do aeroporto, a 1km, encontrará uma paragem de autocarro. Deste ponto para o centro da cidade são 3 km. Além dos autocarros locais, a linha A de miniautocarros tem um serviço regular, das 07:30 às 19:30, nos dias úteis. É a forma mais barata de chegar ao centro da cidade e custa apenas 35 cêntimos.

    O bilhete é comprado no autocarro!
    Ticket is bought on the bus!

    Both SATA and TAP, working in code share, link the mainland Portugal to the Azores. Sometimes you get a better fare if you buy a ticket through EXPEDIA paying with USD. Just compare!

    A SATA e a TAP, em parceria, ligam Portugal continental aos Açores. Às vezes consegue-se uma melhor tarifa se se comprar um bilhete através da agência EXPEDIA americana. Compare!

    Taxis in Ponta Delgada.

    Taxi in Ponta Delgada.

    Taxis in Ponta Delgada are very honest and straight forward.
    In most places around the world, taxis is something that you need to be a little vary about if you do not want to get ripped off, but in Ponta Delgada you are fine as they are few and they are very organised and honest.
    The taxis are mostly not cruising around for passengers like you see in many other countries, but they tend to be waiting at the taxi stands and then you either have to go there to get a ride or call them.
    If you are in a hotel or a restaurant then just let them call them and everything will be smooth.

    The Azoren airline SATA connects Ponta Delgada with around a dozen different countries in Europe and North America.
    The airline is based in Ponta Delgada and it´s an airline that has pretty good service compared to most airlines these days and they have some very good deals from time to time so check out their website if you plan a visit to the Azores and you might find the deal you are looking for.
