Faro Airport (Portuguese: Aeroporto de Faro) is located 2.6 km (1.6 mi) to the west of Faro, Portugal.

The airport is very busy during the summer months, March to October, to the extent that the airport becomes a slot coordinated airport.

A total of 5.4 million passengers used Faro in 2008. The airport became a hub for the first time in March 2010, when Ryanair decided to base seven of its aircraft there.
