How to get to Ponta Delgada, São Miguel island

The participants can fly directly to João Paulo II Airport (PDL) located near the city of Ponta Delgada in São Miguel island. There are daily flights leaving from Lisbon and Porto to São Miguel island, operated by three companies: AZORES AIRLINESTAP Portugal and RYANAIR.


There are direct flights also from other European cities (for example Munich, Frankfurt, Paris, London, and Amsterdam) to the João Paulo II Airport (PDL). It is also possible to fly directly from Canada (for example Toronto) and the USA (for example Oakland and Boston) to the Azores.

Getting from the airport to the city
