Does anyone know what the problem is with Hoppa   ?? Angry crowds left waiting at Faro over 2 hrs or more for transfers already booked and paid for , friend had to take a local taxi and pay again as did many others

Overbooking, staff not turning up, not enough resources generally. This lot attract many complaints on various travel forums.

People demand cheap, but they moan like wotsit when cheap = bare bones service.

Use them on a regular basis and have never waited more than 15 minutes at Faro Airport for private taxi transfer, always on time for return journey too

A couple of years ago friends who always previously had your experience CCout, ended up taking longer to get from Faro to Albufeira than it had taken to get to Faro from Glasgow. They don't use them anymore...

Maybe just a bad hair day. A couple of flights coming in late, careful arrangements all screwed, general choas and I suspect no management to be seen.

With the present arrangements at Faro ... it is simply bound to happen. And it doesn`t look like this airport will ever cope with an increasing summer rush ... at least, not very well.
Can`t blame the owners ... they saw it coming and planned their expansion ... but it just happened to co-incide with a big switch from eastern med to western parts.
