Taxis

The official taxi rank is located right outside the airport’s arrivals exit and there is no need to order one in advance. The journey takes around 10-15 minutes and the cost is around 15 €.

Transferring between the Azores Islands

There are two ways of travelling between the islands, by plane or by ferry. There is only one airline and one ferry company offering inter-island connections so it is easy to choose. Which option is best for you will depend on the islands you are travelling from and to and which time of the year it is, and of course how much time and money you want to spend on it.

Flights are more expensive, but take less time to an island not located right next to the island you are travelling from, while ferries cost far less, but take longer. Not all islands are inter-connected with each other, but there are at least flight connections between the three island groups all year around. 

It is recommended to plan for flexibility in the itinerary when it comes to inter-island transfers as both flights and ferry departures tend to be delayed, cancelled or changed, partly due to weather, but it may be for any reason. Schedules change often and it is difficult to plan exact travels long in advance.

Don't forget - if you plan to travel during your stay, it might be more economical to rent a car at Ponta Delgada Airport.
