This airport is much bigger than the Belfast City air base, but it's still relatively easy to get through as there is only one terminal. There are places to eat on both sides of security, but there is a much wider variety once you're airside – the Fed & Watered Lounge, Strangford Grill and Lagan Bar are perfect for a pre-flight pint and meal. You can also shop whilst you're waiting for your flight in Traveller, Duty Free, or WHSmith. Free Wifi is available inside the airport, and the Causeway Lounge is also perfect for knocking out a few hours work prior to your flight.

Terminal Information – Arriving
Faro Airport is a modern and functional airbase, ferrying hundreds of happy travellers to and from Portugal's south coast every day. There's a pharmacy, currency exchange and ATM on the landside, as well as plenty of links to the coast.
One of the easiest ways to get to the coast is via the bus. Lines 14 and 16 go directly into Faro, and it costs €2.40 for a one way journey. They operate between 5am and 11pm, and you can find more information on Proximo.
Alternatively, you could grab a taxi into Faro. The costs for cabs will vary, depending on the time of your trip and your destination. If you're catching a cab between 6am and 9pm it's cheaper, as there is no surcharge. Cabs at night will be slightly more expensive, but they are still available at the taxi rank outside of Faro Airport. You should also take into account any tolls within your journey, as they will be added onto the fare.
Direct shuttle transfers can also be arranged at the airport, or prior to arriving. This is a great option if you're heading to a resort.
Make sure you arrive at least 2 hours prior to your flight to Faro, as this is a flight to a different European country. Occasionally, the airport becomes even busier during summer.
