Given the popularity of Portugal with European tourists, it puzzles me why 3 Portuguese charter carriers all ceased operations in close succession during the early 1990's. Was there a large downturn in people visiting at the time or too much competition?

Good question, and I don't have the answer. It's interesting that there are others now operating in Portugal, including Air Luxor, YES, Portugalia, and others that I can't recall right now.
