Beja Airport has a customer

bejaSoltour and Jolidey, the tour operators, have moved shared charter operations to Beja Airport but only during June.

Lisbon to Tenerife Sul flights, scheduled for June 11, 18 and 25, will take off from Beja Airport after passengers have been transported by coach from Lisbon.

The congestion at Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado Airport has become a nightmare for some operators which are waiting for the ‘second airport’ deliberations to finish and for work to start at the Montijo Air Base to ease the pressure on the capital’s single airport.

In April, travel industry news service, Publituris, spoke with several tour operators which said that the current conditions of the airport infrastructure at Humberto Delgado will be the main problem for airlines this summer.

Most airlines say that, until a new airport is available, it will be necessary for all airports to extend operating hours. This will allow airlines to run additional flights, even if the hours are not passenger-friendly.
