Portugal’s minister of planning and infrastructure has revealed that the only idea under study to install an airport in the centre of the country involves the Monte Real Air Base.

“We have already begun a joint work between my Ministry and the Ministry of Defence to assess the conditions for opening the Monte Real base to civilian traffic,” said Minister Pedro Marques.
“We have successfully concluded a process of definitive certification of opening the civil traffic of the Lajes base (in the Azores island) and is a process of this nature that we want to develop here in Monte Real.”

Monte Real Air Force base is where the Portuguese F-16 squadron is based at the moment.
