In order to limit the spread of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV), an increasing number of countries are imposing quarantine or denying entry to visitors who have recently been to the People's Republic of China. If this is your case, it is your responsibility to check the entry restrictions of your destination country.

The situation is evolving rapidly and is beyond our control. We recommend that you regularly check the restrictions put in place by the border authorities of the country you are planning to visit. Please note, however, that Air Transat will not be held liable and will not assume any expense in the event that you are refused entry into your country of destination due to these restrictions.

Should you need to change your itinerary, please contact your travel agency or our 24/7 customer contact centre.

Flights to Portugal


Flying to Portugal

  • Portugal tourism: Port wine, sunny beaches and peixe

    Portugal is tucked between Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, and is one of the warmest countries in Europe. Travellers fly to the land of peixe (or fish) to discover its many culinary delights, architectural treasures, hot beaches and delicious, traditional port wine.

Discover Portugal

  • Porto and vinho verde

    Visitors will absolutely want to see Portugal’s vineyards and try all the local specialities: portovinho verde and maybe even alentejo.

  • Golf, a popular sport

    Portugal’s climate is perfect for playing golf. In fact, it was recently named one of the best golf destinations!

  • Portuguese gastronomy

    Portugal is known for its fish (peixe) and seafood dishes, but grilled chicken is also a specialty. A must-try is the pastéis de nata, creamy custard tarts that are light and heavenly. Foodies who fly there relish the country’s tasty fare!
  • Portuguese beaches

    To the south, the Algarve is known for its beautiful beaches and ideal surf conditions. Tourists—especially families with children— often start their beach holiday in Faro or Albufeira, as the water is warmer and the waves, gentler.
  • Outings, events and festivals

    The cities of Lisbon , Porto and Albufeira are known for their trendy bars and discos, where tourists can dance the night away or discover Portugal’s melancholy fado music. There are also many musical festivals organized around the country, mostly in summer.
  • Portugal’s main tourist centres

    The capital, Lisbon , is renowned for its historical monuments—like Belém Tower—and its breathtaking views. In Porto , tourists can take a cruise on the Duoro River to see the city’s many UNESCO heritage sites from a unique vantage point. Coimbra is home to one of the oldest universities in the world and Guimarães is where Portugal’s national identity was born. Fátima, of course, is the favourite destination of religious pilgrims.
