Faro Airport is the 3rd busiest in Portugal and the 58th busiest in Europe, with as many as 8,700,000 passengers passing through it in 2017. It serves the touristic region of the Algarve, with its many beaches and summer resorts, and like the other 2 International airports in the mainland, it has seen passenger numbers rise by more than 10% each year for the last 6 years.
