Being predominantly a tourist airport, Faro is extremely busy, especially in the peak season, and it can be very hectic. Increased security checks add to the stress of travelling, with long queues and increased waiting times. As an antidote to the noise and the crowds, why not treat yourself and relax in the relative serenity of the Faro Lounge, the airport's VIP facility.
In addition to providing a relaxing environment with views over the runway, the lounge gives you the opportunity to catch up on some work with free Wi-Fi exclusive to users, computer terminals with internet access and power sockets for charging your mobile devices.
The Faro Lounge can be used by passengers with first or business class tickets on some airlines and those with affiliated club cards such as Dragon Pass and Priority Pass. For other passengers, payment of the appropriate fee can be made on arrival to gain access.
The price is currently set at €30.00 for adults (over twelve years of age) and €15.00 for children of three to twelve years old. Children under three go free. The lounge is located in the departures lounge adjacent to boarding gate A52. After clearing security, follow the signs for "Gates A" and "Sala CIP".
This lounge has the following facilities:
- Air conditioning
- Complimentary sandwiches and snacks
- Hot and cold beverages
- Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks
- Exclusive free Wi-Fi
- Computers with internet
- Newspapers and magazines
The Faro Lounge is open from 06:30 to 23:30. The maximum time permitted in the VIP lounge is three hours. The lounge is strictly non-smoking. The operators understand that the majority of passengers using the lounge are travelling for holidays and the dress code is relaxed. However, users are asked not to wear items such as baseball caps, football shirts, tracksuits or anything with offensive slogans.
