Private Jet Charter Services - Lisboa Airport (LPPT)
Paramount Business Jets offers private jet charter flights and luxury airliner charters to and from Lisboa Airport.
Lisbon Airport is among the most famous in Hollywood history for it was the destination of the plane that carried Ilsa away from Rick in the 1942 movie, “Casablanca.”
“Here’s looking at you kid,” were Humphrey Bogart’s famous words to Ingrid Bergman on the Moroccan tarmac on which her plane to Lisbon was being readied for takeoff.
(Not to spoil the romance surrounding Lisbon Airport but the movie was actually shot on a studio lot in Burbank. The few necessary airport shots were made at Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles.)
Today, Lisbon’s Portela Airport, officially renamed Humberto Delgado Airport in 2016, is the busiest airport in Portugal and is the only Lisbon airport that can handle every size private jet. In fact, it is Portugal’s biggest private jet airport.
Many people charter private jets to Lisbon to do business in the country’s capital. Others rent private jets to Lisbon as tourists to see the colorful city, sip wines from nearby vineyards or gobble sardines and other famed Portuguese tin-canned fish.

About Lisbon Airport
Even though the airport that lies less than four miles north of the center of Lisbon is commonly called Lisbon Airport, it actually has another name.
In May 2016, the Portuguese government renamed Lisbon International Portela Airport Humberto Delgado Airport, in honor of the late Portuguese politician and air force general.
Delgado, who was an opposition leader against the fascist dictatorship of António de Oliveira Salazar, played an important role in Portugal’s aviation history. He was the founder of the country’s first airline, TAP Air Portugal. Delgado, who died in 1965, would have been 110 years old in 2016 when the airport was named after him. Delgado was known as the General without Fear for his staunch opposition to Salazar, who was prime minister of Portugal from 1932-1968.
Its prime location puts Humberto Delgado Airport within easy reach of the city, its hotels and its financial and commercial center.
Lisbon is not only the capital of Portugal, it is the country’s largest city.
Located on the Atlantic coast at the mouth of the Tagus River, Lisbon is the westernmost capital in Europe.
Like Rome, it is surrounded by seven hills, giving it its nickname, the City of Seven Hills – or maybe eight, if you count Graça, the highest one in the city, shadowed by São Jorge's Castle. Perhaps the eighth hill was forgotten or overlooked – so as not to make Lisbon seem mightier than Rome -- in the 17th century when the seven hills were identified: São Jorge, São Vicente, São Roque, Santo André, Santa Catarina, Chagas e Sant’Ana.
Lisbon airport opened in 1942 during the World War II when it was used by Germans as well as British airlines and acted as hub, in the neutral country, for smuggling people in and out of Europe – as reflected in the plot of “Casablanca.”
The airport has grown and been modernized since then. There were even plans to relocate but they were scrapped in 2007 when the city realized the airport was situated in the best location possible.

Why charter a private jet to LIS?
Lisbon, the charming seaside city with colorful buildings and beautiful surroundings, has several festivals throughout the year but none as big and fun as the Festas dos Santos Populares, or the “Popular Saints Festival.”
Every June, many elite travelers rent private jets into Lisbon Airport to celebrate the feast days of popular saints, Saint Anthony (who was born in Lisbon and is the city’s patron saint), Saint John and Saint Peter. The Feast of St. Anthony is also called the Sardine Festival.
Colorful parades, singing and dancing fill even the back streets of Lisbon for two weeks in the summer.
Perhaps the highlight of the festivities is the Procession of St. Anthony, which leaves on June 13 from the cathedral where the saint was born in 1193.
