Easyjet reopens Faro base for the summer

EasyJet stated that it will resume summer operations from its seasonal base at Gago Coutinho International Airport in Faro.

“EasyJet, the main European airline, reopened its base in Faro, inaugurated in the summer of 2021, from which it will operate 21 routes this summer”, said the air carrier in a statement.

It will have nine A320 planes in the Algarve until the end of October, with a total capacity of 2.1 million seats, up 15% from 2022, according to the same source.

The carrier detailed the locations that it serves from Faro, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Milan, Basel, Geneva, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, London, Glasgow, Lyon, Nantes, Bordeaux, Toulouse, and Paris.

“We can’t wait to get back in the air over the Algarve and start the new season. The reopening of the Faro base in 2021 was one of EasyJet Portugal’s largest investments to date”, said the general director José Lopes.

At the end of February, the Portuguese airport manager ANA announced that Gago Coutinho international airport would have 18 new routes and 6 new destinations in the summer, operating a total of 81 connections to 71 cities.

This increase in routes has already given the Algarve “the greatest connectivity ever”, according to João Fernandes, president of the Algarve Tourism Region (RTA), who said it was “the result of joint work between Turismo do Algarve, ANA Aeroportos and Turismo de Portugal”.

After that, the RTA president said, “we have a very substantial increase in available seats during the summer, which is 250,000 seats more than in 2019, which was the year with the highest offer ever”.
