Where is it?

The ANA Lounge is located airside in the Schengen area of the transit hall. After security control, turn right, follow the signs towards A gates, pass through the large duty free shop and you will see the sign for the lounge to the right, next to the cafe.

How do I get in?

There is just one lounge at Faro airport which is used by most full-service airlines including British Aiways and the Lufthansa Group.

You can also enter using various lounge cards such as Priority Pass and it is also possible to pay to access.

What’s it like?

The lounge is small and basically consists of a small room with seating for around 30 guests. The design is contemporary with a board game-inspired design. The floor looks like someone has been playing Othello. Unfortunately the lounge is completely windowless, which makes it somewhat dark.

Colourful armchairs

The armchairs are very colourful in green, blue and black and there are glass wall to create some partition between the seating areas and to keep the noise level down. There is also a bar table with barstools.
