Below are quick answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Which airlines fly to the Azores?
The only airlines flying directly to Azores from United States are Azores Airlines, TAP Portugal and United. You can fly directly via Boston or New York. The U.S. routes target not only tourists, but also the strong Azorean community living in these countries.
What is the best month to visit the Azores?
Being the driest and hottest months, July and August are often seen as the best time to visit the Azores. The school holidays are the most popular time to visit the islands of Sao Miguel and Terceira as they're both well-connected to the outside world by direct flights from the UK, USA, Canada and mainland Portugal.
How many days do you need in Azores?
In general, you should be able to see all the highlights on most Azores islands in 2-3 days. The only exception is São Miguel, the largest island, where we recommend staying at least 5-7 days.
How do you get around the Azores?
The best way to get around the Azores is by car. A rental car allows you travel with complete freedom, as buses around the islands can be unpredictable and cater more to locals than visitors. Plus, taxi fares will add up fast.
