We're scheduled to arrive in Lisbon Feb 17 at 8:10 a.m. on an overnight flight from New Jersey. We then need to get to Faro. Looks like the Lisbon airport does not have a train station so we're wondering about flying versus taking the train. There are 3 flights to Faro each day. One leaves the Lisbon airport at 9:45 am. Am I cutting it too close to make that flight? Not sure how far the United terminal is from the TAP Portugal terminal, if there are extra COVID precautions that would delay us from making the 9:45 flight, how long it will take to get our luggage, etc. The next flight isn't until 3:50 pm. and the thought of being at the airport all day isn't attractive.
If it IS easy to train from Lisbon to Faro what are tips for getting from the airport to a train station? Can I wait to buy tickets the day I arrive?
