I'm trying to find some way to fly back from Oporto to Manchester airport. The Air Portugalia website sort of indicates it flies this route; the website keeps alluding to it but then doesn't deliver any details (at least not in English).

Does anyone out there know if Portugalia still flies this route?

Or if not, has anyone flown back from anywhere in Portugal to Manchester? I know Ryanair fly into Liverpool, but every other airline/route appears to go into London.

Appreciate any light anyone can shed! Thank you.

faro manchester:

check from here other different possibilities:

choosing "Faro" (or other city where you leave from) in: "cerca un volo low cost"(=find a low cost flight) da ovunque (=from elsewhere..[you have to choose from where])

is on the top of the page, on the left

The only options from Porto are here

And that means No connection to Manchester but you could ofcourse make a stop somewhere in the middle
For instance Porto - Dublin Dublin Manchester with Ryanair.

Hope it helps,

If you check the Portugalia website:, there is a combobox on the right upper corner. By default the combobox says "Português". If you click the combobox you may select English.

Then you may select the dates on the central grey area. The result will tell prices and availability in English, I've just checked.

Btw, Portugalia is not a low-cost company. But it flies to Manchester (eventhough I'm not sure the flight from Porto is direct, there might be a stop in Lisbon).

Hope it helps. Enjoy your traels. A
