With the purpose and responsibility to guarantee safe travel, ANA Aeroportos de Portugal will continue to work in an integrated manner with tourism entities, national and international partners so that the return to the Algarve translates confidence in a safe destination.”


I dont think we realise just how lucky we are in this country, zero hours in Portugal has ment no subsistence, families are really struggling out there, this I know because I keep in touch with so many!! As for the UK it seems to me with the figures that we have suffered one of the worst in Europe with infection rate and deaths, but these sad figures also give us one of the best Hurd immunities also in Europe,

I was in the algarve on the day everything shut down that was onthe 20th of march.I and others from various parts of the globe had spent the week celebrating st Patricks day. We also practiced our hygene routine and to a certain extent our social distancing. Nobody in our yearly gathering contacted the virus thanks be to God. I had already booked to come back in late sept. Early oct.so I have been monitoring the situation in portugal and in particular tbe algarve. I think the people of portugal done a great job in stablising the growth rate and the death rate of the virus. But a great effort has been made by other people of countries to flatten the curve of the virus . These are the people who should be invited to come and carry on the safety measures that has been so successful to date. Careful monitering on entry and departure should insure the safety to all visitors and host alike.

Just glad we live away from the main tourist areas.

Don't get too enthusiastic . Ryan air can offer what they wish, but what makes you think millions of Brits are going to respond ? . I for one will not be herded on to a cattle train , prodded along like a donut. And what will we find at the other end ? .Are all the bars going to be open without any social distance nonsense ? , Somehow I doubt it !! . Pretty sure they want our ££££ , but not us ! What about the beaches ,are they going to be regulated ? or half open ? I guess the live music options are down the pan as well . So if your lucky enough to live on the Algarve I wouldn't be too worried about a Brit invasion , at the moment I would say it's not going to happen, I would love to visit but too many minuses !!!!

Just love the news and love the catastrophic comments, the damage of continuing with the sustained lockdown is beyond anything that the Covid disease can deliver all be it I don’t relish the thought of a second wave! We can not sustain a continued lockdown on the generation before us, it’s simply selfish and typical of the slipper brigade who sit in the comfort of their guaranteed pensions etc with no thought for the youngsters who will be responsible for taking care of this miserable generation one day!

Second wave on it's way. It'll make oxdiacere a picnic in the park

Unbelievable, the government are going ballistic about some gatherings in Lisbon and the party in Lagos, yet they want to open the flood gates to countries where the virus was much worse than in Portugal. All they do is send contradictory messages to the people, is it any wonder that people are flaunting the restrictions. The world had gone crazy and it looks like common sense has deserted the sinking ship. More lockdown is inevitable and the masses will again jump to the tune of WHO and Dr. Bill.
