MOD confirms Portela and Lajes airport to assist with Ebola

Portugal’s Ministry of Defence confirmed this week that Lisbon’s Portela airport and the US military base at Lajes in the Azores will both be used by America in the latest effort to combat the Ebola virus at source in West Africa.
The idea is for both locations to support the transport of military personnel and medical supplies, as well as for the transport of patients with Ebola to the United States.
