The project consists of a programme of investments at the seven airports in Portugal owned and operated by ANA, primarily aimed at improving safety and service standards and alleviating specific operational and capacity constraints. The main investments are at the mainland airports of Oporto, Faro and Lisbon; the smaller investments are at the four airports which serve the islands in the Azores archipelago off the west coast of Portugal.
All airports operated by ANA and included in the project fall within the airports Trans-European Network. In addition, all of the airports except Lisbon are either in a Convergence or, in the case of Faro airport, a Phasing-out region.
The full range of investments will be reviewed during appraisal to confirm whether they fall inside or outside the scope of Annex II of the EIA Directive 85/337/EC as amended by Directives 97/11/EC and 2003/35/EC.
The Promoter is subject to EU Procurement Directive 2004/17/EC and follows the relevant national legislation, which incorporates that directive. The Promoter’s procurement schedule will be reviewed during appraisal.
