British Airways returns to Faro

UK flag-carrier British Airways has re-launched a direct flight between London Heathrow and the Algarve more than ten years after it first suspended the service to Faro.

British Airways at Faro airportBritish Airways suspended its flights to Faro back in October 2007 after more than 40 years of flying to the region, following the termination of its GB Airways franchise which was bought by easyJet in a multi-billion euro deal.

After more than a decade’s absence, a British Airways Airbus A320 from Heathrow landed at Faro Airport on Saturday (30 March), with a welcome party being organised to celebrate the return of the important route.
Passengers on the flight were welcomed to the Algarve with regional almond cakes and personalised gifts, and the aircraft also received the obligatory flight baptism.

It was further revealed that this summer, British Airways will re-introduce its twice-daily flights to London-Gatwick after two years of single daily flights, as well as re-opening its London City-Faro route for July and August.
Altogether, along with the new Heathrow-Faro route, the airport said the new developments are “highly representative of the attractiveness of the Algarve market and region to the British market and the flag carrier.”

The boosted connection between Faro and London will also facilitate connecting flights for those flying from the Algarve to long-haul destinations on the British flag-carrier.

The Heathrow route will take the form of two return flights per week, on Saturdays and Sundays, with the departure time from the UK being at 4.15pm and the return flight from Faro scheduled for 7.45pm.
The flights have a duration of two hours and 30 minutes.
