The metro red line stations – Moscavide, Encarnação and Aeroporto – opened for operation on July 17. The Oriente/Aeroporto red line extension is 3.3 km long and has three new stations, with an estimated monthly average of over 400.000 new passengers.
This extension will have a significant impact on the accessibilities to and from the Lisbon International Airport, thus becoming an important interface for air transport passengers and the majority of people working in the area.
Additionally, this extension will also serve the residential areas of Moscavide and Olivais (nearly 7% of Lisbon’s total population lives in the Olivais area).
The three new stations will enable a reduction of 5,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
The new link makes it possible to travel from the city administrative center – Saldanha – to the Lisbon International Airport in just 16 minutes.
