Tenerife South Airport, which is also called Tenerife South-Reina Sofia Airport, is well known by many holidaymakers from Britain and other parts of Europe. It is the gateway to Tenerife, one of Spain’s top holiday resorts in the Canary Islands. The airport is 60km (37 miles) from Santa Cruz, but relatively close to resorts on the west coast of the island.
Although the airport is small, there is a fair selection of restaurants and shops. Passengers wanting reading material, gifts, souvenirs, a snack or quick meal will find that the airport caters well to their needs.
Tenerife South Airport is served by a number of low-cost carriers, including easyJet and Ryanair, which connect the airport to many cities across Europe. More than seven million sunseekers take flights to Tenerife South each year.
