Vacationing in Faro? Perhaps spending just a day before leaving to explore the rest of the Algarve? No matter what your vacation plans, there are an array of options available for Faro flights.
Faro International Airport or Aeroporto de Faro in Portuguese, is the only international airport in the Algarve. As such, it is the gateway to the Algarve and in 2009 served over five million passengers. From May to October, the airport is especially busy, as Faro and the Algarve are a massive vacation locale for both Portuguese residents and tourists around the world. The airport is quite small at this time, but there are plans to expand, especially as Faro and the Algarve continue to grow in popularity as a tourist destination.
Scheduled air carriers as well as charter air carriers serve the Faro International Airport. Scheduled air carriers such as TAP Portugal, the country’s national airline, provide year-round, almost daily service here, while charter air carries like Air Transat Vacations only provide seasonal service, during the summer months. Charter service is also limited to one departure a week, so you may need to be flexible with your travel dates if you chose to travel with this option.
The Faro International Airport is located under 3 kms from the city center of Faro. It is connected to the city through airport shuttle service, public bus, taxi hire and car hire. Unfortunately there is no train service operating from the airport to the town center. If you are planning on taking the train from Faro to another coastal city, you will need to take a bus, taxi or car to the train station in the center of town. As the airport is so close to Faro city center, all transfer options are quite affordable and can be completed in a very limited amount of time.
While the airport is small, with only one terminal, it still houses the necessary facilities to make your travels more comfortable. ATMs, banking services, currency exchange facilities, bars, restaurants, shops and duty-free outlets are available inside.
