Distant about 76 miles northwest of São Miguel and occupying a surface of 381.96 km2, Terceira has as its main gateway its international airport, located in Lajes, 3 km from the city of Praia da Vitória, which besides its civil functions, due to its excellent clues and strategic geographic position, also performs military functions, in it being hosted the Air Force Command of the Azores, Air Base no 4 and an important Military Base of the American Air Force.
