From the airport you can easily reach the city of Faro with cars, taxis and public transport.

Proxima manages the public transport of the city of Faro. From the airport there are two bus lines running every day, which both reach the center.

The two lines run from Faro’s Bus Terminal to Praia Beach, passing through the airport. Same terminus, with slightly different paths. The 14 line works, every day, from 07:00 to 17:00, from Faro. The most frequent 16 line is active every day from 05:00 to 23:45, from Faro to the Airport, and from 05:10 to 00:10 in the opposite direction. The ticket for a single ride can be purchased directly on board the vehicle, at a cost of €2.35 per person.


The best way to get to the main Algarve destinations is by bus to Faro and from there by train. The central railway station is located just 200 meters from the Terminal Rodoviario, that is, the bus station, where the 14 and 16 lines arrive. Once you reach the central station, you can move comfortably by train.

As an alternative to public transportation, you can consider to rent a car, directly at the airport. Of course, in our opinion, the car is the ideal solution for a road trip. Possibly with… an electric car.
Outside the Arrivals Terminal, you will also find numerous taxis. In general, to get to Faro, the fare is around €10.00. Keep in mind that, in case of large baggage, you will have to pay a surcharge.

* The list is subject to change. All links, updated, can be consulted on the official website. Before leaving, it is recommended to inquire about the provisions and rules on COVID-19 in Portugal, and on the mandatory nature of the vaccine.
