ANA Aeroportos de Portugal

ANA Aero Porto de Portugal ( ANA) is the Portuguese state airport operator, who is responsible for seven airports in the country. The company's headquarters is located at Lisbon Portela Airport.


The now organized as a private law stock corporation owned by the state -run ANA was created in 1998 from the split of the former officially run Aero Portos e Navegação Aérea EP in ANA and the authority responsible for civil air traffic control Navegação Aérea de Portugal (NAV Portugal), which will continue to operate as a public authority.


ANA operates three civil airports in mainland Portugal (Lisbon Portela Airport and Porto airport Faro Airport ) and four airports in the Azores ( Flores Airport, Horta airport, Ponta Delgada Airport and the Santa Maria airport); also a civilian terminal at the military airfield Beja is operated on the mainland. The airports of ANA produced in 2010 a total of 25.9 million passengers per year (of which 14.1 million alone in Lisbon).

Over the 70 - % - subsidiary ANAM ( Aero Portos e Navegação Aérea da Madeira, SA ) the airports of Madeira and Porto Santo are operated on the island of Madeira. A 49 - % stake in the Macau airport, the 15 - year concession expired in September 2011, was sold to the Chinese partner in the summer of 2011.


In December 2012, the privatization of ANA was decided by the Portuguese government. In a bidding process, the company was sold to the French construction group Vinci.
