This article is in DESPERATE need of being retitled.
A visit to the official airport website refers to it as "Aeroporto de Lisboa" in Portuguese and "Lisbon Airport" in English. If the operators of the facility use these names, then why is the article slugged with a name that I suspect nobody outside of Portugal would use on a bet?
I will accept the fact I may be off base here, but referring to airports in an online resource that is used by people across the globe should display a bit of common sense. I'd wager more people (by a few orders of magnitude) know where Lisbon is than Portela. Especially those interested in finding out more about the airport.
Re-titling the English language article "Lisbon Portela Airport" makes sense and in no way detracts from the facility's supposed correct name as used on the article at present. Even if the operators don't use it.

The official name of this airport is Aeroporto Internacional de Lisboa. Aeroporto da Portela is an informal name given by taxi-drivers and the people who lives in Lisboa. Aeroporto de Lisboa is a simplified way to talk about the airport. Thank you! Mjsanunes (talk) 16:25, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Accidents and incidents
The chapter accidents and incidents should be eliminated since those accidents and or incidents did not take place at lisbon airport. they took place in brazil and the azores islands. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 14:02, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
