Faro Airport receives €33 million makeover

Faro5

Traveling to and from the Algarve has just been made a whole lot easier with the opening of its new multi-million-euro terminal at Faro Airport and extended flight schedules for 2018.

With Europe’s top golf destination just a couple of hours away from 30 airports dotted around the UK and Ireland, travellers are ditching the unpredictable weather and packing their bags more than ever before to head for the wide selection of top-quality courses in the sunshine.

Huge investment and expansion has taken place at Faro Airport in recent times, including the construction of a brand new €33-million terminal, making the short journey even easier – especially with so many inexpensive flights now available.

More than 8m travellers passed through Faro in 2017 and that number looks set to rise again in 2018 with a healthy increase of around five per cent already recorded during the first two months of the year.

With an increased number of direct flights from Cork, Dublin, Leeds Bradford, Manchester, London Gatwick, London Luton and London Stansted, the gateway to golf even easier to access, as passengers plan their trip to the Algarve.

The Portuguese hotspot, which boasts 43 fabulous courses, remains a major draw for UK and Irish golfers, but with the extensive accommodation options, wonderful beaches and scenery, and so many attractions for all ages, there are so many reasons to visit the region at any time of the year.

Maria Manuel Delgado e Silva, Algarve tourism golf product manager, said: “With so many flights now arriving into Faro, it has never been easier to welcome our many visitors from the UK and Ireland.”

She continued, “We have seen record numbers of visiting golfers from the UK and Ireland in recent years and we hope that our commitment to delivering excellence to all golfers will ensure the Algarve remains the number one choice."
