A Memorandum of Understanding was signed today between the Government and ANA, establishing an integrated solution which includes a new Master Plan for Humberto Delgado Airport to extend it to its maximum capacity and enhance its competitiveness as an international hub, and the civilian use of Montijo air base for complementary point to point capacity.
