Portuguese Government decides to build New Lisbon Airport at Campo de Tiro de Alcochete

Portugal's Council of Ministers announced (14-May-2024) New Lisbon (Montijo) Airport will be constructed at Campo de Tiro de Alcochete. Lisbon Humberto Delgado Airport will cease operations when the new airport is completed. The Portuguese Government decided to temporarily increase Lisbon Humberto Delgado Airport's capacity to 45 movements per hour in response to growing demand, with the airport forecasting 39 million passengers in 2030 and over 100 million in 2050. The Council of Ministers also approved Luís de Camões Airport as the official name of New Lisbon Airport. The new airport will feature two runways with capacity for up to 95 movements per hour and the possibility of expanding to up to four runways. Construction of the first runway requires an investment of EUR3.2 billion, with completion scheduled in 2030. Construction of the second runway requires an investment of EUR2.9 billion and is scheduled for completion in 2031. [more - original PR]
