Faro Airport Lounge

Faro Airport has a small airport lounge located upstairs between gates A52 and A53, open from 6 am – 23:30 pm. Although small and basic, the attraction of Faro Airport Lounge is that it offers a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the main departure lounge area.

After going through security, take the escalator on your right to the first floor. The lounge is located at the top of the escalator, between gates A52 and A53.

Access to the lounge costs €25 per person for up to 2 hours. You can either turn up on the day, or book the lounge in advance through Loungepass.com or by emailing the lounge desk at Ana: [email protected]

During the peak summer months, the lounge can get over-crowded and during this period you will need to wait until other people leave the lounge before you can go in. This includes people who have pre-booked. So, although it’s possible to pre-book we recommend turning up on the day and seeing how busy it is.

For this you get tea and coffee, a selection of sandwiches and snacks, fruit, and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Wi-Fi is available, allowing you to catch up on those all-important business e-mails. If you don’t have a laptop with you, there’s a computer that you can use in the lounge.  Alternatively, if you don’t feel like working there’s always a selection of complimentary magazines and newspapers available as well as an excellent view of the runway.

This lounge is Faro Airport’s main lounge and so serves the following airlines: Tap, British Airways, Lufthansa, Aer Lingus, SAS, and Brussels Airlines. It’s also affiliated with the following international lounge access programs: Priority Pass and Dragon Pass.

    • Thanks Laura,

      That’s good to know! I will need to go back and see what it’s like now as it’s been a while since I was there but, based on the comments of other people who’ve been there recently, it doesn’t seem like this lounge is worth the money.

  2. New lounge now just after passport control/duty up the stairs on the left. Food is still dreadful, poor choice of drinks, don’t bother.
