Information

Important Portuguese Air Force air base, home of 2 Tactical transport squadrons, 1 MEDVAC squadron, and 1 S&R squadron. Aircraft of these squadrons based here include the C-130 Hercules, CASA 212 Aviocar, CASA 295, and various helicopters. The Navy's Helicopter squadron is also based here.

It was decided in 2017 to convert the Air base into a secondary airport of the city of Lisbon, aimed mainly at low-cost carriers. The conversion is already approved, and the 'new' airport is expected to be opened in 2019.
