Plane Spotting Lisbon

The Radisson Blu

Is located abeam the approach to Runway 13 on short finals. The hotel is an unusual shape which means that the rooms with views of the airport do not generally follow on from each other.

Rooms ending in **09 7th floor and above are reported to have the best views as you can see the terminal and runway from here ensuring that most movements can be seen. Rooms 1003 and 1005 give an angled view of movements on approach to Runway 13 or climbing out off Runway 21 but flight tracking is needed to identify the aircraft. Rooms ending in *12 and *14 are also reported to have good views of the runway and part of the apron.

The hotel has high speed internet and breakfast is reported to be superb. There is also an excellent Chinese restaurant located next door to the hotel. The hotel has a private car park at around 15 euros per night, however there is a public car park under the flyover opposite to the hotel which is free in the evening.

Photography isnt really possible from the hotel, however the usual spot on short final for runway 03 is only a 10-15 minute walk from here.

Jupiter Hotel

Is ideal for couples taking a city break as the hotel is located in central Lisbon. The hotel is good quality with a panoramic rooftop with two outdoor pools along with a SPA, buffet restaurant and 24 hour bar along with free Wifi in all areas.

The hotel is on around 1 3 mile final to Runway 03 which is usually the landing Runway direction at Lisbon.

Ask for a high floor room on floor 6 and above overlooking the Avenida and you will get views of the final approach with aircraft flying past your window at around 900 feet. Rooms ending in *01-*05 and *28-*32 should have the above views.

The rooftop pool and bar area is great and makes for a relaxing stay. All inbound’s can be read off and larger aircraft can be photographed with around a 300 lens. From the pool area, outbound’s can be seen about 3 miles away climbing out, around a third of these will turn back through the overhead and route back over the hotel at around 8000 feet.
