Faro Airport customer review

For those of you with children make sure you bring a packed lunch with you for them otherwise it could be a seriously expensive end to your holiday. 12 euros for a small burger meal is as close to extortion as I've ever seen! Other drinks and sandwiches are also seriously expensive and there's hardly any choice. What shops there are (no more than 4) are ok but there really is very little here. The airport itself is clean and tidy but that's not much help if you're stuck there for hours.

Faro Airport customer review

A nice little airport the check in and security was very quick and easy. However there is not enough option for shopping and the cafes and bars are extremely expensive. I had to pay 2.60 euros for a 330ml can of coke while a sandwich was even more! Good amount of seating by the gates is another plus while the views onto the airfield are wonderful.

Faro Airport customer review

A great little airport. My mid-July arrival on a Friday was simplicity itself. Travelling with only hand luggage passport control and customs was a breeze. Baggage hall looked quite busy . Had it not been for a second-rate local car hire company not cancelling my booking upon arrival I would have been out of the airport in ten minutes. Sadly had to use one of the major international firms at a far higher cost though the car and service was probably much better than I would otherwise have received. Upon departure if you only have hand luggage you just walk past the check-in queues straight to security. Very quiet on a Tuesday afternoon and staff were friendly and professional. Boarding gate was comfortable and plenty of seating although many people ignored the seating in favour of trying to jump the queue by hanging around the door. Fortunately they were ignored as gate staff applied Easyjet strict boarding procedure. Excellent shopping airside and plenty of refreshment options.

Faro Airport customer review

This is a pretty good airport with plenty of seats although I suspect in peak season it can get very crowded. A bit expensive - 1.80 euros for a small bottle of water and a very steep 3.50 euros for a 500ml bottle of coke!

Faro Airport customer review

Faro Airport is clean spacious and facilities are good. Check in and baggage reclaim are a doddle but it can get quite crowded in the peak season. The Winter is the best time to use this facility. Plenty of bars and eateries so a good transit point in general.

Faro Airport customer review

Our first time using Faro - arriving was fine it was a Monday and quiet. We were actually going to Isla Canela just over the border into Spain so got a good transfer coach at quite a cheap rate for the trip. Going home however was a different story it was a Friday and quite busy but there was only one person checking passports and the queue went for miles! Apart from that it all seemed OK as airports go.

Faro Airport customer review

Having not been to Portugal for 18 years until this summer I was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency of the place considering the number of passengers that it handles. Most of the flights are holiday charters of course but it is comfortable and provides what you need without any fuss.

Faro Airport customer review

Travelling on internal flights from Faro was a breeze. Check in was easy security swift easy to find the gate quick to load and baggage reclaim a breeze (15 minutes from plane door to exiting the terminal). My flight out of Faro was in the early morning so no shops were open and food outlets only just before the flight left however the lounge opens very early with a very good selection of drinks. Easy airport to navigate no real problems to moan about!

Faro Airport customer review

I've flown in and out of Faro around 50 times now. I think it is a superb airport. All the secuirtypassport etc well manned friendly and polite. The baggage reclaim is especially efficient. I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes unlike BHX and LGW where I've had 40 minutes wait at the belt! The whole place is especially spacious. Catering is very good and very cheap. A couple of euros for ham and cheese croissant. Coffee is good and very cheap. The car parks are very close by and if you avoid the major car hire companies (who bus you in) you drop you car off within 100 metres of the departure desk. Overall never had a bad experience here. Which is more than I can say of UK airports.

Faro Airport customer review

Faro Airport is pretty good. Even in the busy season it copes but there are queues sometimes long at security and passport control during these busy times. I agree the catering is poor and costs an arm and a leg but hey isn't that last beer in the Algarve sunshine up on the roof terrace worth a couple of euros more? It certainly is to me!! Anyone who had experienced Faro Airport before it was rebuilt would think twice about decrying the place. That I can assure you was hell on earth.
