Lisbon Airport (aka Humberto Delgado Airport) is an important hub for travel to Portugal and wider Europe, as well as onward travel to Africa and South America. For this reason, it welcomes more than 31.1 million passengers every year, as well as 141,000 tonnes of cargo. The airport is more accessible than many, being located less than 8km from Lisbon’s historic centre.
It has had a rich history, from first opening in 1942 and being used by both Allied and German forces – with Portugal being a neutral country during World War II. For this reason, many people will be most familiar with Lisbon Airport from its many mentions in the iconic 1942 film Casablanca!
In the intervening years the airport has grown, and now comprises of two terminals and over 60 departure gates.
Lisbon Airport sought Purified Air’s help to improve indoor air quality across all its departure lounges – which we achieved with the installation of Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs). Cleaning down to 0.01 microns our ESP’s will filter and clean the air removing virus and bacteria.
