Plans for Lisbon’s Second Airport in Montijo Gets the Red Light from Regulators | Público (PT)

Project for an airport in Montijo is brought to a halt.

The Autoridade Nacional da Aviação Civil (ANAC – National Civil Aviation Authority) rejected a request from Aeroportos de Lisboa for a preliminary assessment to determine the feasibility of building an airport in Montijo

The councils of Moita and Seixal, both CDU (Communist Party) strongholds, were the ones to oppose the plan.
