The passenger does not need to quarantine because he/she comes from an EU country and has a stay of less than 48 hours in Portugal; he/she has to leave the transit zone and can leave the airport, as the airport does not allow overnight stays, but the passenger has to limit his/her movements to what is essential for the purpose of the entry into the national territory.

Mind that all passengers of international flights bound for Mainland Portugal, whether as a final destination, in transit or transfer, will still have to complete a Passenger Location Card,  after check-in.
