Just joined the forum and was hoping someone who knows a bit about the Lisbon Airport could help me out. I Happened upon this site with a google search and thought I'd try it out.

I'll be flying out this upcoming Saturday and could use some advice. I'll be arriving in Lisbon from Toronto Ontario at 6:40am (Sunday) and I have a flight from Lisbon to Liverpool at 10:00 am arriving 1:10pm. My flight to Liverpool doesn't say what gate it'll leaving from, all it says is T2.

I'm guessing that means Terminal 2, but then the guide on here says For Easyjet that Terminal 2 is only for flights to Madeira... I'm confused and it slightlty worries me. Is there some sort of mistake with the boarding pass? Has things changed since the guide was written? If I have to still go to terminal 2 where would the shuttle be to get there? I really appreciate your help with this as I'm quite nervous about the trip!

I haven't ever been in Lisbon airport specifically, but when you arrive, there'll be monitors showing departure flight information. You look up your departing flight on there, and it'll tell you the exact gate number (that just hasn't been scheduled yet at this point). If this Lisbon to Liverpool connection is one many people will make, then they better airlines will also announce the gate number shortly before or after landing, and you can of course always ask the airline people where to go to once you arrive; they're there to help.

Anyway, once you know which specific gate to go to, just follow the signs to that gate, and/or to terminal 2. If the gate is indeed in another terminal (which is quite common), then the signs will direct you toward wherever it is that you get on that shuttle. You have almost 3.5 hours to make this connection, which is loads and loads of time. So don't stress it, take your time finding the necessary information, and you'll be fine.

Thanks so much for your help, it's much appreciated. I guess I am stressing out a little too much about it haha. I'll take a look around once I get there and see if I can ask someone about it, thank again :)

I took the same easyjet flight as you from Lisbon to Liverpool in May, and it does go from T2. Lisbon airport is actually a little confusing- we thought we had followed signs to T2 and still ended up in T1 (or maybe that was just us being dumb!) but it just involved us getting a shuttle bus between the terminals so it was no big deal. This only took a few minutes and buses are regular, so if you do end up in the wrong terminal don't worry.

Your gate won't be on your boarding pass as you'll be told this when you check in.
