Category : Lisbon , Portugal

card_aeroporto_lisboa_241114

Uma dezena de companhias aéreas estreia-se este Verão no Aeroporto Humberto Delgado, em Lisboa, com destaque para o reforço da operação de empresas originárias de países da Europa de Leste.

Das dez novas transportadoras a operar em Lisboa desde 27 de Março, data que assinala o arranque do verão na aviação comercial, quatro são provenientes da Europa mais oriental – a romena Blue Air, a búlgara Bulgaria Air, a croata Croatia Airlines e a russa Ural Airlines.

Passaram a voar para Lisboa ainda a grega Aegean Airlines, com ligação a Atenas, a espanhola Air Nostrum, a brasileira Azul, a inglesa Monarch e as portuguesas Everjets, para o Funchal, e a Orbest, com voos ‘charter’ para destinos turísticos, como Cancún e Punta Cana.

Em contrapartida, segundo os dados da ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal, Lisboa perdeu duas companhias também da Europa de Leste – a russa Transaero Airlines e a ucraniana Ukraine Airlines.

Do panorama geral, o aeroporto de Lisboa foi o mais atrativo para as companhias aéreas, seguido por Faro, que conquistou duas novas empresas (as ‘low cost’ espanhola Volotea e austríaca Niki), sem perder nenhuma das que já voavam para o aeroporto algarvio.

A novidade no Aeroporto Francisco Sá Carneiro, no Porto, foi a Wizzair, companhia aérea de baixo custo da Europa Central e de Leste, com sede na Hungria, com voos para Varsóvia.

Também o aeroporto do Funchal ganhou uma nova companhia, a portuguesa Everjets, que entretanto já pôs fim aos voos regulares entre o continente e a Madeira, prometendo continuar as operações, nomeadamente para o Porto Santo, mas apenas através de voos ‘charter’.

Segundo os dados da gestora aeroportuária, o aeroporto de Lisboa é também o que oferece este verão mais novas rotas, num total de 11, sendo seguido de perto pelo de Faro, que este verão tem oito novas rotas.

O Porto tem três novas (Colónia, Copenhaga e Varsóvia), Funchal e Ponta Delgada uma nova rota (Amesterdão e Providence, no estado norte-americano de Rhode Island, com o retomar dos voos da Sata, respectivamente).

New flights launched between Lisbon, Bulgaria and Russia

Category : Lisbon , Portugal

Aircraft landing on runway

Five new flights have recently been added to operations at Lisbon’s Portela airport, between the Portuguese capital, the Bulgarian capital Sofia and the Russian capital Moscow.

The once-weekly direct flight between Lisbon and Sofia is operated by Bulgaria’s national carrier Bulgaria Air.
Launched at the end of April the weekly flight lands in Lisbon on Thursdays at 11pm, and leaves again for Sofia 50 minutes later, linking the two historic capitals with a flight of just under four hours.

National airport management company ANA – Airports of Portugal said the Lisbon-Sofia operation is “another new company and another new destination for Lisbon, which has seen its connections grow and its options for Portuguese passengers diversify as well as amplifying the entry of tourists to Portugal.”

Passengers on the inaugural flight from Sofia were welcomed to Lisbon with a party atmosphere, including cake, champagne and a celebratory selfie to take away with them, to mark the occasion.

Also on 1 May, Lisbon Airport welcomed Russian Ural Airline’s inaugural flight from Moscow, a route so far operated only by Portugal’s national flag-carrier TAP.

The Yekaterinburg-based airline is using an Airbus A320 to operate the flights, on Thursdays and Sundays, with the incoming aircraft landing in Lisbon at 11.50am and set to depart again an hour later.

Preço das casas deve aumentar entre 2% a 3% em Lisboa, Algarve e Porto

Category : Portugal

Lisbon panoramic

Nos próximos doze meses, o preço das casas deve aumentar entre 2% e 3% nos três principais mercados habitacionais do país, de acordo com o inquérito mensal Portuguese Housing Market Survey, produzido pelo RICS e pela Confidencial Imobiliário (Ci).

Lisboa deverá registar a subida mais expressiva (2,9%), seguindo-se o Algarve (2,7%) e o Porto (2%). Em termos médios nacionais, a subida esperada é de 2,5% nos próximos doze meses. Os promotores e mediadores inquiridos neste survey mensal consideram mesmo que o aumento do preço das casas vá acelerar, apontando para um crescimento médio anual de 4% nos próximos 5 anos no mercado português.

Esta subida expectável dos preços resulta do bom momento do mercado de compra e venda de casas, com as vendas a aumentarem em Março pelo terceiro mês consecutivo após a ligeira quebra registada em Novembro. A procura por parte dos novos compradores também aumentou a um ritmo sólido em Março em todas a regiões e também as novas instruções para venda (indicador da oferta) têm vindo a subir, indo ao encontro da procura.

Para Ricardo Guimarães, director da Confidencial Imobiliário, é claro que “o sentimento global do mercado é positivo, resultado de factores de natureza geral, como o facto de existir um Orçamento de Estado em vigor, mas também fatores específicos, que têm ganho dinâmica e sustentado a evolução do mercado. É o caso do aumento dos novos créditos concedidos e o ressurgimento dos vistos Gold, após meses de congelamento”.

Já Simon Rubinsohn, Economista Sénior do RICS, comenta que “a recuperação da economia portuguesa continuou a progredir a um ritmo constante até ao momento, com os inquéritos aos agentes de mercado a mostrar que a confiança se mantém sólida. Assim, a melhoria dos fundamentos do mercado deve continuar a impulsionar ainda mais o crescimento da actividade no mercado de habitação nos próximos meses”.

Vivre au Portugal: les avantages

Category : Portugal

1_-lisbon
Le Portugal est desormais entrain de devenir une des destinations privilégiées des français à l’heure de la retraite, au même titre que le Maroc (qui compte près de 50 000 français retraités) ou que l’Espagne. 
Près de 5 000 français ont fait le choix de vivre au Portugal en 2015 et 20 000 sont attendus dans les 2 ans à venir. Le Portugal possède en effet de nombreux avantages qui en font un pays privilégié pour passer sa retraite :

Le Portugal : proximité avec la France

La proximité avec la France et l’appartenance à la zone euro est un avantage considérable aux yeux des français qui partent vivre au Portugal, leur permettant de garder un lien avec leurs proches et d’alterner les lieux de vie en fonction de leurs envies.

Lisbonne se situe à moins de 2H30 de Paris et les désertes aériennes sont nombreuses : on dénombre près de 400 vols hebdomadaires depuis la France vers le Portugal (et autant dans l’autre sens), soit approximativement 1 vol/heure.

Il y a également des désertes directes pour Lisbonne depuis Lyon, Toulouse, Nice, Nantes, Bordeaux, Marseille

Les tarifs sont accessibles (à partir de 120€ pour un aller/retour paris/lisbonne), notamment grâce aux nombreuses compagnies low-cost effectuant la liaison avec la France (Transavia, Ryannair, easyjet…)

Qualité de vie et pouvoir d’achat au Portugal

De nombreux retraités français qui décident de s’établir au Portugal y cherchent à améliorer leur qualité de vie.

En effet, le pouvoir d’achat est meilleur au Portugal qu’en France. D’une part, l’immobilier y est plus accessible qu’en France, d’autre part, le coût de la vie hors frais de logement y est en moyenne de 30% moins cher.

Ce coût de la vie moindre est à mettre en relation avec un niveau d’infrastructures (qualité des routes, des ports, des aéroports …) de très bonne qualité :

  • Classé 11e par le Word Economic Forum sur 189 pays dans son analyse « Global Competitiveness 2013-2014 »
  • Classé à la 5e place parmi les pays de l’OCDE pour son pourcentage de pénétration du Très Haut Débit ; 15,2% des connexions par fibre optique, au-dessus de la moyenne OCDE
  • 90% des services publics sont accessibles en ligne

Ainsi, même avec une pension de retraite française modeste, votre niveau de vie global pourra se trouvé amélioré au Portugal et ce tout en bénéficiant d’infrastructures qualitatives.

Le Portugal est un également un pays très sûr qui présente le taux de criminalité parmi les plus bas d’Europe.

Facilité d’intégration

Le Portugal présente de nombreux points communs avec la France, notamment culturels: origine latine, tradition catholique, culture méditerranéenne…

Le dépaysement est moins important que dans un pays de culture sensiblement différente, l’adaptation à votre nouveau mode de vie sera donc facilitée. De plus, nos 2 pays ont de nombreux liens tissés depuis longtemps : la communauté portugaise est la plus importante communauté « étrangère » en France, près de 15%, (700 000 portugais se sont installés en France dans les années 70).

La communauté française au Portugal est également très importante, notamment à Lisbonne.

Les portugais sont plus de 50% à parler une deuxième langue : un grand nombre d’entre eux (notamment les plus âgés), parlent français, les plus jeunes parlent aisément l’anglais, ce qui permet de se faire comprendre facilement et de s’intégrer rapidement.

La fiscalité portugaise avantageuse pour les retraités

La convention fiscale qui lie la France au Portugal et le décret Portugais instaurant le statut spécifique de « Résident Non Habituel » permettent aux retraités français d’être totalement exonérés d’impôt sur les revenus d’origine française (pensions de retraite du secteur privé, dividendes et intérêts), et ce pendant 10 ans, à condition de ne pas avoir été domiciliés au Portugal dans les 5 années qui précèdent.
C’est le régime des Résidents Non Habituels (RNH).

20 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Portugal

Category : Portugal

Lisboa-seguro-viagem-portugal

Did you know that purchasing property in Portugal could enable you and your family to become Portuguese citizens? This is one of many reasons why an investment here could be a very wise decision.

So, if you’ve been considering relocating your family or making that investment in a holiday home, retirement home or a home you can rent out for extra income, you should really consider Portugal. The reasons are overwhelming:

  1. A Portuguese passport for the whole family. Our top reason for investing in Portugal has to be the fact that if the head of the household qualifies for residency, all dependents automatically qualify without any additional costs.
  2. A secure property market. Possibly the most important reason you would want to invest is that Portugal has a proven and secure property market with an average property growth of 15% per annum over the last 15 years. Not too shabby.
  3. High rental income. Rental yield in Portugal on average remains one of the highest in Europe – you could rent your house out a good few weeks of the year and even more if it is in a prime spot like Cascais.
  4. It’s a peaceful place. According to the 2015 Global Peace Index rankings, Portugal is the 16th most peaceful country in the world, boasting one of the lowest crime rates in Europe. In fact, Lisbon was recently voted the safest capital city in Europe.
  5. One word: golf. Portugal is undoubtedly one of the world’s top golfing destinations, with more than 50 world-class golf courses already built or under construction and many more in the planning phase. If you enjoy the sport, there is probably nowhere else in the world that caters better to your golfing needs.
  6. Sport is big. You can also enjoy many other sports, including most water sports, horse riding and even skiing in the north.
  7. Open space rather than crowds. Portugal has one of the lowest population-to-land densities in Europe, so even the major cities are not overcrowded and there is plenty of open space for all to enjoy.
  8. It cares about its environment. For many years, Portugal has seen a trend towards the development of the country’s renewable resource industry. It has considerable wind and river power resources, the two most cost-effective renewable resources.
  9. Relaxed immigration rules. Portuguese residents can also choose to live and work almost anywhere in Western Europe or Brazil, and can visit most countries without any restrictions.
  10. A low cost of living. Living costs, including food, drinks, gas, electricity, water and transport, are relatively low compared to most other European cities.
  11. The climate is unbeatable. Expect long, hot summer days cooled by the Atlantic breeze, and extremely pleasant winters. Short bursts of rain ensure that the landscape stays lush and green.
  12. A solid public transport system. Getting around the country is easy and pleasant, as public transport by road or rail is safe, reliable and affordable.
  13. Unspoilt countryside – both now and in the future. The Portuguese Government enforce strict planning regulations to ensure the beaches and countryside remain unspoilt – so you can be sure your investment won’t be tainted by hundreds of developments springing up around you.
  14. Life is good. Portugal has a wonderful laid-back culture of enjoying “the simple things in life” – good food, good wine, good company, sport, leisure, and plenty of natural beauty.
  15. High living standards. The life is good in Portugal is a fact! Lisbon has climbed four places in terms of living standards, according to the Mercer 2011 Quality of Living Survey, placing it above cities like Milan, Tokyo, Rome and Madrid.
  16. Internal flights are cost-effective. With flight times of less than three hours, a great choice of airports and low-cost airlines, the whole of Portugal is close, easy to reach, and affordable.
  17. A not-so-difficult language. Portuguese is not that difficult to learn. And once you’ve mastered it, Spanish and Italian will be a breeze!
  18. Easy, quick access to and from Europe. From Portugal, the rest of Southern and Central Europe are super accessible, so you can explore even more. And friends and family in the UK will have no problem coming to visit you as often as you want them to.
  19. No language barriers. Many Portuguese residents speak English, so you won’t have to struggle with language barriers.
  20. A place to call home. And finally – the Portuguese people are truly friendly and hospitable. You will feel welcome and “at home” if you decide to make Portugal your second or even your only home!
