For those who want to travel to the listed countries, Reykjavik (Iceland), Riga (Latvia), Oslo (Norway), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Vienna (Austria) will be available, added the official.

Luís Pedro Martins argues that “2023 could be a record year in terms of the number of companies flying to Francisco Sá Carneiro airport”.

“This increase in companies and the continuation of the behaviour that the destination had in the months of January and February, everything indicates that [2023] could also be a record year in the number of guests and overnight stays. Hopefully, it will continue to be profitable as well,” he added.

Austrian Airlines starts on April 1st and will have three weekly flights, Icelandic Play starts on April 6th with two flights. This will be followed, on May 1st, by the Latvian Play, to Riga, with two frequencies, on June 22nd and 23rd and Norwegian plans to connect Oslo and Copenhagen to Porto twice a week, while Scandinavian Airlines also plans to connect the Danish capital twice a week from the 1st of September, reads information made available to Lusa.
