Tenerife Airport Transfers

Tenerife Airport Transfers

Tenerife has two airports so if you’re travelling independently make sure you know where you’ll be landing. Tenerife South Airport (formerly Reina Sofía Airport) lies about 60km south of the island’s capital of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and about 20km east of the popular holiday resorts of Las Americas and Los Cristianos. All holiday flights from northern Europe arrive here with total passenger number approaching 9 million annually. There’s also a Tenerife North Airport (previously Los Rodeos Airport) near Santa Cruz which caters for a large volume of flights to the neighbouring Canary Islands and the Spanish mainland. Tenerife is an all year round tourist destination which attracts many flights from most major tour operators and the industry’s best known budget airlines.

Tenerife Sur Airport Transfers

This airport lies 20km east of Playa de las Americas and the journey takes less than 30 minutes. All international charter flights land here as well as most scheduled flights from the Spanish mainland. This will most likely be your point of arrival.

Private Transfers: A popular alternative to taking taxis on arrival is to pre-book a Tenerife airport transfer with a specialised local operator. Transfers can be booked from Tenerife South Airport to all the main resorts including Los Cristianos, Las Americas and Los Gigantes.

By Bus: There are regular bus services running from the airport to Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos and many other resort destinations. You can use the TITSA bus website to find the correct bus number for each route.

By Taxi: There’s no shortage of taxis on arrival and obviously fares will vary depending on your destination. In general it works out a lot cheaper to pre-book a shuttle.

The older Tenerife Norte Los Rodeos Airport is in the north of the island offering easy access to the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and the north’s main resort, Puerto de la Cruz.
