Rail & Fly

Tourists couple in a train station. Rail & Fly

Travel has no limits. That is why, to increasingly extend its destinations network and, at the same time, share the Azores with the world, SATA Azores Airlines has established commercial partnerships with several railway companies, enabling passengers to conveniently combine train and air travel on a single ticket, while also enjoying fare discounts.


Advantages of the Rail & Fly service include:

  • Offering more transportation options to passengers, especially on short or busy routes; 
  • Reducing carbon emissions by replacing flights with train travel, contributing to environmental sustainability; 
  • Freeing up airport time slots for long-haul flights, increasing airlines' operational efficiency; 
  • Improving the passenger experience by providing more comfort, convenience, and flexibility when traveling by train.
