Faro Airport – Gateway to the Algarve

Discover more about Faro and the Algarve before you arrive...

**News Update April 2019** Ryanair and Norwegian, two hugely popular airlines, have announced new flights to Faro Airport this summer.

Compared with important air travel hubs such as London Gatwick (40 million passengers per year) and Manchester (23 million), Faro is a much smaller airport. However, ongoing development is planned to increase its capacity to accommodate the ever-growing demand for flights to the Algarve.

The Algarve is Portugal’s most popular holiday destination and definitely worth a visit. Developed since the 1960s, Portugal’s sunshine region now offers a wide choice of tourist resorts, leisure entertainment and holiday activities, and the area is renowned as a first-class golfing destination.

The Algarve’s beautiful beaches stretch along both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coasts.

Operated by ANA Aeroportos de Portugal SA, Faro Airport is the only airport serving the Algarve, its nearest rivals being Sevilla (SVQ) and Lisbon (LIS), both of which are more than 200 kilometres and a two-hour-plus drive away.

Faro Airport is a popular destination for holidaymakers from all over Europe and further afield but it particularly attracts travellers from the UK and Ireland, Holland, Germany and France.

Faro is served by British Airways as well as a host of low-cost and charter airlines including EasyJet, Flybe, Norwegian, Ryanair and TUI.

Faro airport has three bicycle assembly areas: one in departures and two in arrivals. With the increasing interest in cycling, more and more people want to take their bikes with them on holiday. Most airlines now offer this service but make sure you double-check when booking your flight. You can find more information about airlines that allow you to travel with your bike and cycle routes here.

In terms of local transport, Faro Airport is ideally situated close to the A22 motorway, a major artery that runs along the length of the Algarve from Lagos in the west to the Spanish border in the east and beyond. There are no trains but car hire is easily available, as are taxis and buses.
