Porto and Lisbon connected all the time!

As a rule, four 70-seater ATR72 aircraft are used for the air shuttle flights. The ATR72 is a very comfortable plane and flight time is nearly the same as that of the airplanes currently used on this route.

At times when demand is greater, aircraft of the Airbus A320 family is used, and the new Embraer190 may also be used on occasion.
