Beja airport the zombie airport with no passengers and planes??
Beja airport owned by ANA boasts an increase of passenger traffic through the airport of 495% over the last year. Its sounds very impressive when you read it like that, but in face is a paltry slither of an increase from a miniscule 205 passenger foot traffic through the Beja airport last year to 1,221 passenger foot traffic this year. Thats an amazing 102 passengers using the airport every month? Don't get crushed in the stampede.
There are tiny airports in the Scottish Hebrides with more passenger traffic than these numbers, or small regional airport situated in the middle of the Arctic tundra in Siberia, who are ANA trying to fool? These figures are abysmal?
Beja airport registered growth of 495 percent, from a total of 205 passengers in 2011 to the equivalent of slightly more than two Airbus A380s filled to capacity 1,221 passengers << Well Whoppee!! thats official figures for 1 whole year?
So the Beja airport fiasco continues while the airport is haemorrhaging money by the truckload, and the Portuguese govt, and ANA just stand by and watch -
Still only a trickle of passenger traffic passing through the airport?
Well some good news as Portugals ANA airport operators are to be privatised, so possibly big shake up's will happen within ANA management. This could have a have a knock on effect on the moribund state of Beja airport and maybe it will finally be transformed into a properly functioning airport?
