Like I said, it's a prediction!

Lisbon New Airport to Be Built .

LISBON (Thomson Financial) - Lisbon's new airport will cost about 4.9 bln eur and will likely be in Alcochete, on the south side of the Tagus river, and not at Ota, the site originally chosen by the government, prime minister Jose Socrates said.

'Alcochete is the best option, both technically and financially,' Socrates said speaking at a press conference following today's cabinet meeting.

The prime minister said that a study by the LNEC civil engineering laboratory concluded the airport could be built at Alcochete or at Ota, but that Alcochete would provide more advantages 'and beat Ota on four of the seven crucial criteria.'

These factors were safety, natural resource sustainability, economic and social development, and financial evaluation, he said.

Socrates denied that the selection of Alcochete was based on financial issues, noting that the cost difference between the two options was small, with total investment until 2050 at Ota estimated at 5.1 bln eur, compared to 4.9 bln at Alcochete.

Denying earlier reports that a new bridge over the Tagus river to the new airport would be only for trains, the prime minister said it will be both a road and rail bridge.

Socrates said the selection of Alcochete is preliminary, and that a final decision will only be made after a public consultation.

Industry association reports have said the new airport could cost 6 bln eur if it is built in Alcochete compared to the 9 bln eur it would cost if it were built on the site in Ota.

Sonae SGPS' soon-to-be-spun-off unit Sonae Capital SGPS is seen benefiting from the construction of an airport in Alcochete, as the Troia resort, one of its core tourism projects, is nearby.

PlayasCity- Thank you and actually the 2nd lot is only 27 pics.

Alitezar-Thank you, actually it isn't as busy a it seems, at one point I was at least 30 mins without taking a picture, me and my dad were returning to the car, when all of a sudden a plane landed, so we went back and more planes landed. I don't know why there was such a long gap, possby they were only using the other runway beacuse of the wind, perhaps they closed the airport because of the wind or mabye even (and I live in Portugal, so if you are suprised, don't be it acutally is very Portuguese like), the staf were having lunch. At Porto there is a gap of about 2 hours a bit afer lunch time.

Daniel, tell me, out of some pictures, from yours and hkskyline ones, i noticed the airport lacks enough contact positions... the absence of jetways is quite evident, and it wasnt until one of hk picture that i noticed there are actually some...

seems anyway, a pretty busy airport, moreover if you gotta use remotes...

Yes, it's a very dated airport and an extremely confusing one, if you ever come to Portugal, try to avoid Lisbon Airport if possible.

Lisboa has a very busy and Crappy airport indeed.


There are hundreds of major faults in it so it was already decided to relocate the airport to another location.

Here's a render of the new airport:



Until then (completion date estimated to be somewhere around 2015/2017) the portela Airport still has to manage some 15/20 million pax/year (currently it has about 13 million due to crappy conditions to receive more than that) and is constantly being enlarged ... a new terminal was added last year ... some contacts added to T1 recently and so on ... and a connection to the Lisboa metro network is still being built nowadays.
