On the way at the airport

Although flight operations to the mainland began in 1971, there was still no car hire company at the airport where travelers could hire cars at low prices to explore the island. The first car hire companies established themselves at Ponta Delgada Airport in 1995, when the new terminal was put into operation and more flights from European countries landed at the airport. As with other airports in the Azores, the airport is operated by the company ANA, which is also responsible for developing the future infrastructure of the airport. In 2016, Ponta Delgada Airport recorded 7,800 aircraft movements, with 1.5 million passengers taking off or landing. Today, the airport has a modern terminal with separate levels for departures and arrivals. Its IATA code is PDL.

After the pick-up station at the airport exit, you will reach the small town of Ponta Delgada, five kilometers away, in a few minutes.
