According to the carrier, “the demand recorded so far has led to an increase in supply, with direct connections on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, starting on June 2, 2024”.

The operation between the largest Azorean city and the Algarve district capital had been announced in August, but at the time calls were planned twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays.

The flights will depart from Ponta Delgada at 09:00 and from Faro at 13:25, with an estimated duration of two hours and 25 minutes.

“With this investment, the airline increases its offer for passengers and reinforces its position in the national market, also increasing network connectivity in the Azores”.

The airline operator points out that Faro International Airport “represents the main entry point for tourists in the region and the second largest external entry of passengers, nationally”.
