In this statement, Barber said: “It’s fantastic to see Ryanair continuing to expand its choice from Cardiff with the announcement of a third new route for Summer 2019, bringing the total number of routes to five. This means that in just one year, Ryanair has grown its capacity at Cardiff Airport by over 150%.

    The Portuguese prime minister, António Costa, recently announced plans to open fast-track lanes in Faro Airport for British citizens after Brexit. These dedicated lanes will also be available in Funchal Airport on the island of Madeira, and could be rolled out to other airports across the country in the future. The lanes for UK citiznes will be operated similar to the lanes set up for EU nationals. Costa has also stated that these dedicated, fast-track lanes will be available regardless as to whether the UK leaves with or without a deal.

    In a recent statement, António Costa stressed the importance of tourism from the UK, saying that “Millions of Britons visit Portugal as tourists every year – we have to ensure the flow is not interrupted”

    Holidaymakers from the UK form a significant portion of people travelling to destinations across Portugal, with Faro and Funchal reported to receive a large amount of UK tourists. Last year, there was a record number of 13 million tourists travelling to Portugal. A large percentage of these tourists have travelled from the UK, and the Portuguese government is eager to continue attracting more holidaymakers from the UK regardless of the outcome of Brexit.

    Further plans to ensure these dedicated lanes are run smoothly and efficiently were also announced, with a total of 60 more customs officers are to be hired to help with post-Brexit border checks. British citizens currently living in Portugal will also be allowed to retain their residence as well as other rights, including state healthcare. Portuguese citizens living in Britain are also being offered improved consular assistance.

There is a fantastic selection of fun things to see and do including beautiful sunny beaches, museums, restaurants and more. As the capital of the Algarve, there is also plenty of nearby places to visit for some great sightseeing. Take a look below at just some of the great things you can enjoy in Faro.

    History and culture

Take a trip through the beautiful, cobblestone streets of Faro’s Old Town and take in the sights, or visit the historic churches, museums and more across the city.

    The Museu Municipal de Faro for example is a former 16th century convent that charts the history of Faro including periods under Roman, Muslim and Christian rule. There are a number of fantastic artefacts on show including paintings from the Baroque and Renaissance periods.

    There is also Igreja do Carmo, an 18th century church that is home to Capela dos Ossos or Chapel of Bones. The Chapel was built using the bones and skulls 1,245 monks buried in a nearby cemetery and is an undoubtably unique and macabre feature of the city. If you’re looking for something a little less grim, there is also the Se de Faro, a beautiful 13th century cathedral.

The Ria Formosa Natural Park is a fantastic destination if you enjoy a trip to the beach, and can be seen as you fly in to Faro Airport.

    Praia de Faro is another of Faro’s popular beaches, and is one of the easiest to get to by road. If you haven’t hired a car for your holiday, don’t worry! There is also a regular bus service that runs to and from the beach. There is also a number of bars and cafes nearby for you to cool off in, as well as shops and water sports.

    If you prefer something a bit quieter, the eastern edge of Praia de Faro is often less crowded. You could also take a trip to Ilha Deserta, which translates to Deserted Island. The beach is considered one of the Algarve’s most isolated beaches, and you need to catch a ferry from Faro to get there. If you’re planning on going, make sure to take some things with you as you won’t find any facilities except for the Estaminé seafood restaurant.

    Cork Airport is expecting a large amount of festive flyers this December, which has been attributed to the new winter service to Faro Airport which was recently set up by Ryanair. Take a look at our previous blog post where we talked about Ryanair’s new routes to and from Faro Airport. The growth has also been linked to the new Lisbon route set up by Aer Lingus which began in October, as well as a new daily service from Air France.

    The airport is expected to see over 149,000 passengers travelling through, with Friday the 21st of December set to be the busiest day for arrivals. The predicted numbers for departures and arrivals over the Christmas and New Year holiday season are up by 3.5% in comparison to the same time last year at Cork Airport.

    Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications at Cork Airport said: “Cork Airport plays a vital role in getting people to where they need to be for the Christmas season. With new routes and extended services this winter season, the airport offers greater choice and flexibility for those choosing to fly through Cork Airport.

    “While December 21 is expected to be the busiest day at the airport for arrivals, as we welcome passengers home for their Christmas holiday, the busiest day for departures is Friday, December 28. This will also be the busiest day overall, for both arrivals and departures.

    “More than 2.4 million passengers passed through Cork Airport this year, our third consecutive year of growth,”

    Commenting on the continuously increasing traffic, Cullinane also said: “2018 has been a fantastic year of growth for Cork Airport, and we extend our thanks to our customers, airlines and stakeholders. Over 2.4 million passengers passed through Cork Airport this year, our third consecutive year of growth. This will rise again in 2019 by a further 7% to 2.6 million, with the airport serving over 50 routes across the UK, continental Europe and the east coast of the USA.”

    Cork Airport is also hosting over 30 school and adult choirs to help travellers to Faro Airport and beyond get into the festive spirit while they travel.

    TAP Air Portugal have announced plans to add two new routes from the United States, launching a “non-stop” service to Lisbon from Washington, DC and Chicago.

    TAP Air Portugal have announced plans to add two new routes from the United States, launching a “non-stop” service to Lisbon from Washington, DC and Chicago. The service will be launched next year, and will begin with five flights per week between Chicago O’Hare and Lisbon on June 1, 2019, and will later offer five more flights between Washington-Dulles and Lisbon on June 16.

    The airline will also be using the new routes to Lisbon to promote it’s Portugal Stopover program which was originally launched in 2016, which encourages tourism to places in Portugal outside of Lisbon, including Faro and many more. The stopover program itself allows travellers to choose from over 70 destinations throughout Europe and Africa, and offers a number of benefits including hotel discounts in Faro and other locations, as well as free museum entry and more.

    His Excellency Domingos Fezas Vital, the Ambassador of Portugal to the United States of America, also commented on the new plans: “These two new connections will enable an even greater number of Americans to discover what Portugal has to offer as a privileged destination to visit, to live in, to invest and to study,” He also added: “In that sense, they are a major contribution to the further strengthening of the already close links between two peoples and two countries, that are neighbours across the ocean.”

    “With more than 70 new planes on the way, this is only just the beginning,” said David Neeleman, founder of JetBlue Airways and a major shareholder in TAP. “We have 10 gateways from Brazil to Portugal and believe we can support the same number from the US. Today’s expansion to Chicago and Washington, DC reflects what an increasingly popular destination Portugal has become, especially with visitors from the U.S. Our network beyond Lisbon is also growing. We now serve 55 destinations in Europe and 17 in Africa and fully 50 percent of our American passengers are flying us to places beyond Portugal, many making use of our popular Portugal Stopover program.”
