Aveiro can be easily reached from either Porto or Lisbon airports. While Lisbon has a wider range of international flights Oporto is a major hub for Ryanair. Aveiro is connected to both Oporto and Lisbon by high-speed trains (about 2 hours from Lisbon, about 30 minutes from Porto).

Both train stations are connected by subway to their respective airports. In case of Porto a suburban train is only marginally slower and quite cheap. Faro airport at the Algarve is further away, but well served with low-cost carriers (mainly from U.K.).
