Lisbon Airport to become Humbero Delgado?

Lisbon Town Hall last night unanimously agreed to propose that the name of Lisbon International Airport, currently known as Portela due to its geographical location be changed to the Humberto Delgado Airport.

The proposal, tabled by the Socialist leadership under current Mayor António Costa, was agreed to by councillors from across party lines.

The suggestion for a name change, which has now been passed over to the Government to make a final decision, comes at a time when the country commemorates the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Portuguese army officer.
