ANA continues to ensure air connections

Changes are being made at ANA airports across the country while still maintaining essential routes in and out of the country.

In the face of a health crisis and the restrictive measures applied to the displacement of people, airlines have been forced to reduce their operations.
At the same time, airports around the world have taken drastic measures to reorganise their activities to accompany the reduction - sometimes almost total - of air traffic.
In view of this situation, the priority of ANA Aeroportos de Portugal is to protect the health of passengers and workers in the airport community through the implementation of measures (DGS), namely, dissemination and compliance with prevention, hygiene and social distance recommendations, reinforcement cleaning of the facilities and disinfecting, limiting access to airports and acquiring and implementing a system of temperature measuring chambers.

Immediately following is the continuity of the public service.
A statement from ANA said: “ANA is committed to the State to ensure that the main air access to the country always remain open, allowing Portuguese abroad and foreigners in Portugal to return to their families, and essential logistics chains to continue to function.
“However, Portuguese airports are not immune to the economic impacts of this pandemic, and in order to protect jobs in this phase of great uncertainty, ANA is obliged to reorganise its operation.
As of Monday, 30 March, at 12pm, the operation of Terminal 2 at Humberto Delgado Airport will be suspended, concentrating all shipments at Terminal 1. T2 will be used only for special flight support to SNS and humanitarian flights.
ANA continues to monitor the evolution of the situation on a permanent basis, in close liaison with the Health Authorities and the National Civil Aviation Authority and is fully committed to contributing to the national risk mitigation effort to better combat this pandemic.
