Worldchoice sports have just cancelled their flight to LIsbon.!

Goodness me. I hope there aren’t too many affected.

Rafa: ''No, coach first because we will not be walking to the train station.''

I am; however, given that anybody on a booking should be able to pick up tickets... it would make sense to give out a number per booking (and, seems, this was everyone’s expectation).

Anyway, pretty sure, enough people already got in touch with them, so we should find out tomorrow what it all means.

I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

I didn't realise one person could make two bookings, thought once you'd booked you no longer had access to these days, but you'll prob need to contact them.

It does say above you have to send it on to whoever is picking up along with confirmation

As the lead booker, both this email and the ticket purchase confirmation email have been sent to you only. It is your responsibility to ensure that both emails are forwarded to the supporter collecting the tickets in Lisbon.

Im flying TAP Porto to Lisbon tomorrow 3rd evening. Just received the check in online email from TAP and says this:-

Is mandatory to have a negative COVID-19 test result for entry and transit in Portugal for vaccinated and not vaccinated travelers:
• PCR test, taken a maximum of 72 hours before departure;
• Antigen test, taken a maximum of 48 hours before departure.

Is this an error?

If i go to UK government website, the advice is still the same.

https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/portugal/entry-requirements

If you’re fully vaccinated

If you’re fully vaccinated, you can enter mainland Portugal without needing to test.

To qualify under the fully vaccinated rules, you must have a vaccination certificate which shows you have had either:

    a full course, as described below, of a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency, at least 14 days and no more than 270 days before you arrive, or
    a full course of a vaccine, as described below, plus a booster vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency at least 14 days before you arrive

You will be considered fully vaccinated if you have had:

    both doses of a 2-dose vaccine, or a combination of two different vaccines, or
    an approved one-dose vaccine, or
    a full course of a vaccine, plus a booster vaccine, or
    if you caught COVID-19 after just one dose of a 2-dose vaccine and your certificate shows that your vaccination course is complete after the administration of just one dose of the vaccine


If i go to the IATA website and click on Portugal on the World map:-

https://www.iatatravelcentre.com/world.php

Portugal

Published 28.03.2022
1. Passengers must have:
- a negative COVID-19 NAAT, PCR or RT-PCR test taken at most 72 hours before departure from the
first embarkation point, or
- a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken at most 24 hours before departure from the first
embarkation point, or
- a COVID-19 vaccination certificate showing that they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days and at most
270 days before arrival. Vaccines accepted are:
AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Janssen, Moderna, (Spikevax), Nuvaxovid (Novavax) and Pfizer-BioN Tech
(Comirnaty);or
-a COVId-19 vaccination certificate showing that they were fully vaccinated and have received a
booster dose; or
- a COVID-19 recovery certificate issued at least 11 days and at most 180 days before arrival.


etc



So i don't need a PCR/LFT if im vaccinated with a certificate (less than 270 days since last
vaccination), right?

It's taken a mate over two hours to get through Heathrow security checks today. Also looking on Twitter there are a lot of horror stories at Lisbon Airport of 4 hours waiting time at Border Control for British passport holders...

going to be tight to collect for many.

All I can find online is that BA are cancelling a lot of european flights (100 yesterday) due to staff shortages and fall out from another IT issue middle of last week. Currently, all 4 flights are showing as running tomorrow, but they probably haven't updated it yet.
In the e-mail I got from BA last night they offered me the chance to change the flight for free and/or get a full refund, as european flights were at risk of being cancelled at the moment.

For anyone already there or familiar with Lisbon, what's the easiest way to pay for public transport? Is there contactless payment on buses etc or do you have to buy something in advance? Reading different guides but not sure if they might be outdated. Only stressing about it a bit because I get in really late tonight and just want to get straight to hotel. Cheers
