Will you and me be able to fly in and out of Portugal – using the airport in Beja, more than 100kms north of Algarve – from May 2011 ?
Let’s see ………
Note added June’11 :
It is reported the first commercial flight touched down at Beja airport on Sunday 22nd. May 2011. The flight originated from UK Heathrow airport and although the airplane was ‘full’ only four ‘real’ tourists were on board – it can only get better !
Seriously though, we think this is a great move; if you haven’t already visited the Alentejo region of Portugal and you really want to chill-out this could be the place for you.
Did you know Beja airport has one of the longest runways in Europe ?
