Year after year several million passengers arrive here to spend their holidays in the Algarve, and during peak season the airport is extremely busy.  Accordingly, we recommend that you take this into account and allow sufficient time to check-in for your flight.  Over the last few years the airport has been significantly enlarged and modernized to keep pace with the increasing demand.

This includes a variety of shops and restaurants in the departure lounge as well as various facilities upon arrival.
