Shops at the Airport
Faro airport is quite small, so there is not a huge number of shops; however, there are enough stores for all you flight necessities. As with most airports, there are shops in the public areas and passenger-only areas. The public area only has two shops, where you will find Ale-Hop, a place that sells handcrafted goods and gifts, and Relay, a newsagent where can buy newspapers, magazines and books. There are two additional Relay stores in the passenger-only area too.
After you have passed security and entered into the departures lounge, you will find more shops. If you are interested in fashion and accessories, Fashion Gate, Football Gate and Parfois are three great shops to visit. If you have not heard of Parfois, they are a stylish Portuguese brand selling ranges for women, including shoes, bags, watches and clothing. Fashion Gate is similar, but they stock ranges for men and women and sell top brands such as Calvin Klein, Diesel, Nike, Pepe Jeans and Desigual, where Football Gate sells sports accessories.
The largest and most store is the duty-free shop. World Duty Free operates this store, and as with most airports, it sells a range of duty-free and duty-paid goods such as beverages, cigarettes and cigars and fragrances, as well as local Portuguese delicacies. If you intend to buy duty-free products, ensure you are within the allowances for your destination country. For passengers flying to the UK, a good resource for allowances and rules is www.gov.uk/duty-free-goods.
In addition to the shops, there are places to eat and drink throughout the terminal. More information on all the restaurants and cafes is available here.
