"We're making great efforts to provide charter flight operations in the summer of 2011 by the International Air Transport Association running from March to October".

Read about it in The Expresso - in the article "Aviação: Aeroporto de Beja deverá começar a operar voos charter a partir de março de 2011 - ANA".
