OMNI Handling opens new FBO at Faro Airport


OMNI Handling Portugal

OMNI Handling, Portugal’s leading handling company for executive aviation, is proud to open its brand new 150 sqm landside FBO at Faro Airport in the Algarve.  It debuted in time to welcome F1 teams returning to Portugal’s Portimao circuit after a 14-year absence.

“Faro is where our activity has been growing most these past two years and it was only logical to invest here in a luxurious new FBO to the benefit of our trusted clients,” said OMNI Handling CEO Ricardo Pereira.

He also paid tribute to Portugal’s Mood 4 Wood project team who, despite the obstacles of working under Covid-19 restrictions, successfully brought its design to life, with a passenger lounge, a rest area dedicated to crew, a fully equipped kitchen, an en-suite private bedroom and a very attractive outdoor terrace.

In addition, MOVART Gallery, specialists in African contemporary art, was carefully selected by OMNI Handling to provide stunning artworks to give an inspiring final touch to the FBO.

“The inauguration of the Faro FBO follows the recent opening of our two other lounges in Cascais and Madeira this year, setting new FBO facility standards for our passengers and crew in the region,” commented OMNI Handling Director, Jerome Franier.

Golf simulator star attraction

A key feature of the OMNI Handling Faro FBO is a virtual golf simulator (powered by Trackman) in a dedicated area allowing passengers to compete on world renowned golf courses. “Visitors play golf year-round here – what better attraction to offer this experience to our clients when visiting our FBO,” Jerome added.  When not used as a golf simulator, the dedicated practice area and giant screen will convert into a movie theatre.
