Irish low-cost airline Ryanair recently celebrated the second anniversary of its Algarve hub at Faro Airport with a press conference, a flash mob and the launch of new routes.
The celebrations were chased up days later with comments from the company’s second-in-command, who following a closed meeting in Lisbon last week made it clear that Beja Airport is of no interest to the airline; its sights are firmly set on the capital.
Portuguese resorts, cities and companies have received a total of 26 nominations for this year’s World Travel Awards, with the Europe Gala Ceremony being held at the brand new Conrad Algarve hotel in Quinta do Lago on 6 October, prior to its official opening.
Cascais Town Hall aims to attract visitors to the city’s historic centre with the creation of a guesthouse for young people and the installation of tourism and leisure businesses in that area.
Having bought the only property in Praça 5 de Outubro in the city’s historic centre that wasn’t in its possession, Cascais Town Hall now owns all of the buildings in that location.
