Speaking at a breakfast debate organised by the British-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in Lisbon, Mr Neeleman said the airline is “better prepared to compete” and they are planning to ensure more flights from Porto airport.
If we manage to get more planes, we will begin flying to other destinations, he said.
Turning to Lisbon, he stressed that there had to be quick departures to maximise the number of operations per hour on the only runway and the airport had to install a new air traffic control system.
The five years scheduled to open a secondary airport in Montijo was once again a point of criticism, with Mr Neeleman saying it could be open in two years “if they put their minds to it.”
