“Flights will take place on Wednesdays and Sundays, departing from Ponta Delgada at 9:00 am and departing from Faro at 12:25 pm”, said Azores Airlines, noting that the air connection between the two cities will have an approximate duration of two hours and 25 minutes.

According to the SATA group airline, flights between Ponta Delgada and Faro will be carried out “in Airbus A320 equipment with capacity for 168 seats”.

With this new air connection, the carrier Azores Airlines "increases the range of destinations to which it operates in mainland Portugal, adding Faro to the cities of Lisbon and Porto, to which it operates regularly throughout the year".

The airline pointed out that Faro International Airport, located in the central area of the Algarve, the southernmost region of mainland Portugal, “represents the main gateway for tourists in the region and the second largest external entry for passengers, nationally”.
