Tenerife Airport

The Island Tenerife has actually two airports. The airport Tenerife South (Reina Sofia) is more recent and has been built especially for international traffic, due to the fact that the airport in the north, Los Rodeos, frequently has to deal with worse weather conditions caused by the Passat winds. The airport Tenerife south is situated 37 miles from the island capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the south and only 20 minutes away from the mayor tourist resorts Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. More than 150 Airlines are operating from this airport, connecting the Canary Islands, the Spanish mainland and a huge number of European capitals. With yearly more than 9 Million Passengers makes it Tenerife South one of the most frequented airports in Spain. The airport complements with International Airport Tenerife North (Aeropuerto Internacional de Los Rodeos), which operates more flights between the Canary Islands and on national level and less international flights.
