Using low cost airlines to reach Porto! Low cost airlines do not allow you to book flights with transit airports! In case you want to use low cost airlines that reach Porto (easyJet and Ryanair), but there is no direct flights from your nearest airport, you must buy separate tickets from your nearest airport to a destination from where they fly to Porto (i.e. return tickets from your closest airport to any of their destinations that fly directly to Porto – all of them listed in the previous page – and from that intermediary destination you should buy a return ticket to Porto). Buying in this way may get you cheaper fares than with traditional airlines (which is not always the case, sometimes some few Euros difference do not worth all the hassle!), just remember that sometimes such flights are not reliable and that the connection is not guaranteed by the companies. To ensure you will not lose your flights, you must ensure that you have enough waiting time between those connecting flights!
