Flights to the Algarve, southern Portugal, go into Faro Airport (Aeroporto de Faro - FAO). Faro Airport is the only International Airport in the Algarve, but there are also two other International Airports in Portugal with Lisbon International Airport (Aeroporto de Lisboa - LIS) and Porto International Aiport (Aeroporto do Porto - OPO).
Flying to the Algarve from Europe is easy with the number of airlines serving Faro Airport. In summer there are several Faro flights a day arriving but in the winter the schedules reduce to only certain days per week depending on the airline.
Flights to Portugal from the UK, Ireland and some other parts of Europe only take about 3 hours, so the Algarve is only a short hop away! From places further afield like America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, flying to Portugal is still very 'do-able', but it often just involves changing planes / airlines and more often than not it is cheaper to fly to Lisbon (central Portugal) and then transfer by car, bus or train down to south coast Algarve.
The location of Faro Airport (central Algarve) makes transfer time from Faro to anywhere along the region less than 1 hour 30 minutes, but most of the major Algarve resorts are easily reached within the hour and the popular central Algarve resorts like Vilamoura and Albufeira within 30 minutes.
