    Seems fantastic to know that this airport’s name has originated from Lisbon! This page has been of much help to me. I was actually planning a trip in August with my family. This information will come in handy.

    Yes, this airport actually serves millions of passengers. In fact, it also provides cargo services. That is why this airport is so busy at times. There are many interesting facts relating to this LIS Airport on this page. Good to read!

  • Mohit Patel says:

    I wasn’t sure about the correct Lisbon ICAO code. Now that I have gone through your post, I am sure that the code is LPPT. I believe that my time has been well-spent after reading this post.

  • Thomson says:

    It can be really helpful for travelers to know the list of airlines that operate at LIS Airport. I would love to share this post with my friends who are planning a vacation in the coming month. Glad that you took the time to post about it.

  • Renu says:

    I knew that this airport had shops but I didn’t know where exactly I could find them. Now I know their location. I never checked near the terminals of Lisbon Airport. I am happy to finally know where to locate them.

  • Chirag says:

    I have been using this Portugal-based airport for 3 years. But I knew it more commonly as Lisbon Airport. Its other name, Humberto Delgado Airport is something new that I got to know today. This was an interesting fact.

  • Thomson says:

    I like this write-up. You’ve talked about most aspects of Humberto Delgado Airport. But I want to ask one thing. You’ve written about Humberto Delgado Airport codes too. Should you remember airport codes when you are traveling from this airport?

    • Airfleetrate says:

      Thank you for liking this post. In response to your query, airport codes are important not just for Humberto Delgado Airport but other airports too. However, you are not required to remember them. When you book flights from LIS Airport or any other one, you will find the code on its tickets and documents. While reaching the airport, if you find any difficulties, then the three-letter code will work as a location identifier. In that case, you may remember or look it up.

  • Chirag says:

    hanks for sharing the info, will come in handy when I visit LIS. Hopefully, in the coming month, I may finalize my plan. But can I transit through Lisbon Airport during COVID-19?
