Come Fly with Victor Antonio, one of the Faces of the Year, in Portugal!

"It is essential for European citizens to be aware of an EU country Embassy or Consulate when in a non-EU country and know of the advantages and benefits. Among other things, the safety recommendations of these authorities contribute to better welfare and social protection.” - Victor Antonio, Pilot



Victor Antonio was the pilot of François Bozizé, former President of the Central African Republic who was ousted by rebels in March of this year. Thanks to the French Cooperation in the Central African Republic’s Capital, Bangui, and through communication between a Portuguese officer of the United Nations, the Honorary Consul of Portugal and the Embassy of France, Victor Antonio was rescued and enabled to return safely to Portugal.
