Is it possible to fly from Porto to Coimbra Airfield?

I am planning a speculative trip from Falkirk to Coimbra. The nearest major Airport is Porto but there is a regional airfield nearby, Aeródromo Municipal Bissaya Barreto. Is it possible to book a flight from Porto to this airfield and hopefully skip much of the train journey?

There are no flights from Porto to the Aeródromo Municipal Bissaya Barreto. It's the train you need.

There are no flights to Coimbra is too close to both Lisboa and Porto, by train is just 1h from Porto and 1h45 from Lisboa. You would take more than that just on check-in formalities at an airport...

If you had your own plane of course...

Porto airport to Coimbra by a combination of metro then fast train will take about 1hr 45 minutes overall.

Be aware there are two stations in Coimbra. Coimbra B is on the outskirts, you change there for the 3 minute ride to the station just called Coimbra, which is more or less in the centre.

Coimbra is really nice - I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did. Consider visiting Aveiro by train
