Cardiff Airport announces new winter service to Faro with Ryanair

Cardiff Airport has said that it is offering additional winter sun seats to Faro as Ryanair is planning to extend its existing twice-weekly summer service into this coming winter season.

Starting October 30, Ryanair flights will leave from Wales to Faro on Wednesdays and Sundays. The Ireland-based budget airline will also fly to Dublin four times weekly during the winter, with departures on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Faro is a popular holiday destination for travellers seeking sun, sea and surf. As the Algarve’s capital, the city is rich with history and culture. The city is small and handy for visiting as a city break, besides the opportunity to enjoy Algarve’s pristine sandy beaches and sparkling seas. In addition to the beautiful landscapes, visitors can also discover a range of activities, from championship golf courses to diving opportunities and nightlife.

‘It is fantastic news that Ryanair is extending its Faro flying programme at Cardiff Airport into the winter season providing an increased choice of holiday options for those people looking to escape later in the year,’ said Spencer Birns, Cardiff Airport Chief Executive Officer. ‘Famous for its great weather, fantastic beaches and delicious local food, Faro, and indeed Portugal, is an in-demand destination from Cardiff at any time of the year. With its great combination of low fares, industry-leading operational reliability and attractive flight times we are pleased to see Ryanair growing further at Cardiff in the off-peak season after a busy summer with us. In addition, we know that passengers using the new service will really appreciate the good customer service and uncrowded indoor terminal areas they experience at Cardiff Airport when going on their well-earned breaks.’

‘Ryanair is delighted to announce a new Winter route and extend the service of the Cardiff to Faro route for W22. Our Cardiff customers can now plan a Winter getaway to the Algarve and enjoy some of the best beaches Portugal has to offer’ said Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness. ‘To allow our customers to book their Winter getaway at the lowest possible fares, we are launching a seat sale with fares available from just £19.99 for travel from October 2022 until the end of January 2023, which must be booked by Friday 23 September. Since these super low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.’
