Getting to the Azores
From the UK
Flight connections from the UK are excellent and there are lots of options to consider :
Gatwick direct flight - SATA Air Azores operates a direct flight from Gatwick to São Miguel every Saturday from April to October. The flight takes 3½ hours and costs around £340 per person including taxes.
Manchester and Heathrow flights - TAP Air Portugal operate flights from Manchester and Heathrow to Lisbon and then onward flights to the Azores. Each leg takes around 2½ hours and prices range from £320 upwards depending on availability.
Budget airlines - if you are looking to fly from another regional airport in the UK, you may want to consider flying with a budget airline to Lisbon and then onwards to the Azores with TAP or SATA. The only thing to bear in mind when doing this is that you are effectively on 2 separate tickets so we always allow at least 3 hours connection in Lisbon in case of delays. We are very happy to book budget flights for you and we don't make any charge for this. You pay what you would have done if you'd booked it yourself.
There are daily flights from Lisbon with TAP Air Portugal and SATA Air Azores to the islands of São Miguel, Faial and Terceira with connections from many major cities around the world.
