Next Tuesday, 8 January 2019, a memorandum of understanding on the future airport of Montijo will be signed between the State and ANA – Airports of Portugal, which manages the country’s airports, allowing the Lisbon Airport expansion project to move forward and Montijo Airport to gain solid consistency.

‘Deal sealed’ on new Montijo airport next week

The signing of the memorandum is said to be fundamental to Montijo airport’s construction as it will cement the construction plan of Montijo as a complementary airport to Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado international airport.
Often referred to as Lisbon Airport’s +1, Montijo will be used to absorb overflow traffic from Lisbon.
This combination will reportedly allow Lisbon’s main airport capacity to increase to 50 million passengers per year and 72 aircraft movements per hour.
Despite there still being a lack data on the environmental impact of
the conversion of the military air base to a civilian airport,
it is expected to be operational by 2022.
An environmental impact declaration is expected sometimes during the start of this year.
The agreement also foresees the expansion of Lisbon’s main Humberto Delgado airport.
According to JN, in total, the works will cost around one billion euros, which will be paid in full by ANA - Aeroportos de Portugal.
