The centenary of the apparitions of Fatima
On the occasion of the first centenary of the appearances of Our Lady of Fatima, Brevivet and Duomo Viaggi present the new air service operated by Albastar which flies to Lisbon and Porto directly from Milan Bergamo Airport.
From 20th April to 4th June and from 28th August to 14th September, direct flights to Lisbon will operate every Monday and direct flights to Oporto will operate every Thursday, for a total of 14 departures and around 2,300 passenger seats available. Albastar charter flights will complement all scheduled flights throughout the whole season.
Based in northern Italy, Brevivet and Duomo Viaggi specialise in organising pilgrimages. They offer four-day stays (Monday to Thursday) and five-day stays (Thursday to Monday), with arrivals and departures alternating from Lisbon and Oporto airports.
Pilgrimages and cultural trips are specifically organised for the centenary to discover the most significant places of Fatima’s message and Portugal’s countless wonders that delight the eyes and hearts of its visitors. Some itineraries include visits to the charming medieval towns of Obidos, Sintra, Coimbra, the monasteries of Batalha and Alcobaça, Cabo de Roca, the westernmost point in continental Europe, the fishing village of Nazarè, as well as spending a few days exploring the city of Lisbon. Last but not least, an itinerary that starts from Fatima and continues to Santiago de Compostela along the Portuguese way. The presence of a tour guide is guaranteed at all departures and for the duration of the whole trip.
Flights will be operated with aircraft type Boeing 737-400 belonging to the Albastar fleet, outfitted with 170 passenger seats in one class. Brevivet and Duomo Viaggi have scheduled their departures at 12:00 local time, making the connections accessible also to passengers coming from all over northern Italy.
A choice that SACBO welcomes in seeing that major operators of the religious tourism sector, with which they have a longstanding and consolidated collaboration, have fully recognised the capacity of Milano Bergamo Airport to meet the operational and logistical requirements and to guarantee a high quality service to passengers and the airline company.
