Faro Airport

Faro International Airport (IATA code: FAO, ICAO code: LPFR) is a Portuguese airport owned by ANA Aeroportos de Portugal SA serving the city of Faro and the tourist region of the Algarve, southern Portugal. Located 4 km from the city of Faro in the parish of Montenegro in the Algarve, opened on July 11, 1965.

It is currently the third largest airport in terms of traffic in Portugal just after Humberto Delgado Airport (located in Lisbon) and Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport (located in Porto).

Most traffic from Faro airport is domestic and European. Two airlines currently maintain a base of operations in Faro: Ryanair and TAP Portugal
In recent years, low-cost airline traffic has increased dramatically, with Ryanair also establishing an operational base in Faro with 7 B737 / 800 aircraft permanently assigned to the airport.
This new Hub foresees the increase of passenger movements in the order of 1.5 to 2 million annually. In addition to Ryanair, numerous other low cost airlines such as easyJet and Germanwings make regular connections from the capital of the Algarve.

Currently the airport is undergoing an expansion process that is divided into two phases:
1st – This phase is aimed at the expansion and remodeling of operational areas, creation of more parking places for airplanes, taxiways and installation of ILS (Instrument Landing System) in lane 10. This first phase is scheduled to end the year of 2011.
2nd – Remodeling and expansion of the passenger terminal, in addition to restructuring of access to the airport. This second phase is scheduled to start in 2011 and be completed in 2013.
The final objective of these works is to increase the number of movements from 22 to 30 per hour, the creation of 11 new parking spaces for aircraft with capacity for new wide-body aircraft (such as the Boeing 747), and an expansion of Current processing capacity from 2,400 to 3,000 passengers per hour. In total, an increase in airport capacity is expected from 6 million to 8 million (currently the capacity used is approximately 5.5 million).
