How to Arrive

These volcanic islands are easier to visit, principally since the introduction of low-cost flights (EasyJet and Ryanair). Both of them fly from and to São Miguel Island, the main Azorean Island, specifically to the city of Ponta Delgada, where the congress is to be held.

The “João Paulo II Airport” is located 5km from city center and it has frequent direct flights from/to the main cities in Europe, as well as South and North America. Another easy option could be travelling via Lisbon or Porto and fly directly into Ponta Delgada. TAP has different flights each day either from Lisbon and Porto, as well as Ryanair and EasyJet. Besides, Azores Airlines is the region’s flight company and has also flights either from Lisbon and Porto to all islands, and on a daily basis to/from São Miguel.

From Lisbon/Porto, flights to São Miguel take about 2 hours.


Public transportation is available (bus and taxi services), as well as car rental, to easily go from the airport to the main sites of Ponta Delgada.
