Madeira International Airport anniversary
The Diario reports that today marks the 20th anniversary of the new airport opening in Madeira.
On the same day as the opening of the Olympic Games in Sydney, “Madeira International Airport”, as it was titled then, officially opened. The event was attended by the President and the Prime Minister of the Republic, and the Regional Government under the leadership of a freshly re-elected Alberto João Jardim organised an inauguration to mark what was the completion of the largest national construction project at the time.
