Covid 19 special considerations

Throughout the global SARS-Cov2 pandemic lockdown period, several restrictions have been enforced in europe and elsewhere. Portugal has issued some restrictions to flights originating in several countries where infectious rates are higher. With the situation still developing and changes happening daily with outbreaks here and there, limitations to travel through Portuguese airports have been enforced and will remain while the pandemic will last.

In this light, Atlantis reproduces below the most updated notams for LPLA/TER Lajes airport, Terceira island, Azores. Please note that Lajes continues to be an important transit point in the north atlantic track and is being increasingly used by private, government, state, executive, corporate and cargo flights in need of refuelling amidst the vastness of the atlantic basin. 

Bear in mind that notams may change overnight, as the pandemic situation evolves continously. The below reproduced updated notams do not exclude the appopriate reading on specific NOTAM sites. Updated may 29th 2022:
