Mercury Jets provides on-demand private air charters from London to Faro.
The city of Faro is the capital of Portugal’s Algarve region. Located on Portugal’s southern coast, its history as a capital city began centuries ago after it became the capital of an independent Moorish kingdom. Then, it was ruled by the Harun family who gave the city its name. Faro was later incorporated into the Portuguese territory in 1249 when it was conquered by King Alfonso III.
Modern Faro is a popular European private jet charter destination, especially because of its scenic location on the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can still see remnants of the Moorish wall Arco da Villa, a neo-classical archway, that leads to the historic cobblestone streets of Faro’s Old Town.
