“There may be some queues because it is impossible to end the queues due to peaks of four or five thousand people who flock to the airport at specific times, however, what we guarantee is that everything is being done by the authorities and institutions to monitor and reinforce the conditions to support the service at the airport”, said José Luís Carneiro.

The minister underlined that this plan “seeks to respond to the increased challenges from the point of view of demand” and “to provide a faster and more efficient response”.

“This plan seeks to face this increase, but it is evident that it is time to admit that there are always some periods in which it is necessary to wait for entry into a country in compliance with the country's security rules”, he said.
