We have been using Faro airport for the last 20years. On arrival to pick up a pre booked hire car it was just a short walk through the doors to the right. When we arrived at the end of September 2012 there is now a ridiculous long walk down a tunnel to get to exactly the same place. This is made worse as some of the way is uphill. Not easy with cases those with mobility problems with children or elderly. We are hoping this is just temporary as it is an absolutely stupid thoughtless idea. I have said I would recommend this airport apart from the problem above which will make us think twice about returning.
