tabLajes 729th  
WELCOME TO LAJES! While here on the island of Terceira, we ask that you follow the wishes of Portuguese Air Base 4 and our host government. For example, military personnel are not allowed to wear their uniforms off base, unless they are going to and from work. Another special requirement is that passports are required for all personnel who are not permanent party or TDY to Lajes. This means military members on leave, as well as retirees and dependents, must have passports. 

TERMINAL FACILITIES: Our facility features a Special Category Lounge,  Children's Nursery, Internet CafĂ©, integrated Flight Information Display System, enclosed smoking area, and multiple televisions throughout the terminal. The Passenger Terminal is small so for your safety, and security, we ask that your bags not be left unattended in the terminal. The terminal provides baggage lockers for safe storage.

PERMANENT PARTY INSTRUCTIONS FOR PORTUGUESE AIR FORCE BASE PASS:  In order to expedite arrival processing at the Lajes Field Passenger Terminal, all members should present their blue badge during mandatory immigrations processing. Due to recently implemented Portuguese Air Force requirements, all personnel ending travel at Lajes Field will be required to present their blue badge during immigrations processing. If the member is unable to present the blue badge, he/she will be required to obtain a temporary base pass.
