Aeroporto Estação, Maia, PT (10-09-2018)

Aeroporto is the termination station for the “E” line of Porto’s Metro and offers service between here and Estádio do Dragão. The entire line is about 20 stations and runs for about 35 to 40 minutes.

Getting from the airport to the station is very easy with good signage. A few stairs or a short ride in the elevator are needed.

The station at the airport is completely handicapped accessible with lifts and escalators between the ticketing level and the platform level. There are plenty of automated ticket machines in the ticketing hall but depending on the number of other people, there can be a bit of a queue. It would be nice if there was a single queue for all of the machines instead of one queue per machine, as I managed to get behind someone who had some real trouble working it out.

One ticket is €1.20 and gives you over an hour’s worth of riding. Plenty to go from one end of the system to the other. Or purchase a 24 hour ticket for (I think) €3.50. Just buy the 24 hour ticket.

A quick lesson – the doors require you to activate them to open and they do not appear to have a sensor if someone (or someone’s luggage) is in the way. While waiting for the train to depart, this caught two different tourists. Oops.
