    The distance between Portugal mainland (Lisbon) and island of São Miguel (Ponta Delgada) is about 1.450 km. Two airlines have flights from Lisbon to Ponta Delgada, TAP Portugal and SATA Air Açores. I found a better deal with TAP so I booked a flight with them. It was a morning flight, with departure from Lisbon at 9:00am and arrival to Ponta Delgada at 10:30am.

    I returned to Lisbon also with a morning flight, with departure at 8:30am and arrival to Lisbon at 11:35am. The flight was operated by SATA. There is an hour difference between the two towns so flights actually take a little over two hours. A return ticket was 196€.

    At the airport in Ponta Delgada my dear friend António was waiting for me with the car and brought me to his home - which also became my home for the next 10 days :)

    Flight from Ponta Delgada to Santa Maria

    There are several possibilities to get from Ponta Delgada to Santa Maria. I bought a ticket for a ferry boat (it leaves Ponta Delgada on Friday at 18:30 with the arrival at 22:00 and Wednesday at 9:00 with the arrival at 11:15; it leaves Santa Maria Wednesday at 18:00 with the arrival at 20:15 and Sunday at 12:00 with the arrival at 15:30; a return ticket costed 56€).

    But upon weather forecast it seemed to be rainy on both days of my planned trip to Santa Maria, so I decided to change my plan and rather go three days later when it said to be very sunny. Unfortunately there was no ferry boat at that day. I had to return the ferry boat ticket and bought a flight ticket instead.

    SATA Air Açores has the most flights between Ponta Delgada and Santa Maria. I took a flight from Ponta Delgada at 6:30 with the arrival at 7:00, and returned with a flight leaving Santa Maria at 19:50 with the arrival at 20:20. But in fact, the flight only takes about 20 minutes.

    The third option to travel to Santa Maria is by boat for transporting goods. It leaves ponta Delgada on Monday and Wednesday at 18:00 and return from Santa Maria on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00. The journey takes 6 hours and the price of return ticket was 35€ + 6€ for insurance.
