On the same latitude as Florida and only 100km (60 miles) off the coast of Africa, Fuerteventura is less popular than the other Canary Islands, but is seeing increasing traffic from UK holidaymakers and day-trippers from Lanzarote and Gran Canaria.
Fuerteventura Airport is situated 5km (3 miles) from the capital Puerto del Rosario and only ten minutes’ drive from the resort of Caleta de Fuste. Though small, the airport is clean and modern and the only steady complaints are the inflated prices of the shops and restaurants. Also, queues can move slowly in peak season.
Serving more than four million passengers per year, there are flights to Fuerteventura Airport from many cities in Europe. While some only operate in peak summer tourist seasons, there are plenty of options from cities such as London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Berlin, Brussels, Vienna, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Madrid, Tenerife, Milan and Zurich.
