Tenerife makes the perfect base to explore the Canary Islands with direct flights available to all of the other islands and ferry connections with all of the western islands as well as Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

The majority of Inter-island flights operate from Tenerife North Airport with the southern airport used mostly for international flights. CanaryFly and Binter operate these routes using fleets of ATR 72 twin-turboprop aircraft.

Both Fred Olsen and Naviera Armas offer services between Los Cristianos and La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro and between Santa Cruz and Gran Canaria.

    Hi, what is the best method of getting to a hotel in Playa del las Americas from my hotel in Puerto de la Cruz? Thanks

      I think that the best way would be to get the 343 bus from Puerto de la Cruz to the Magma bus stop near Playa de las Americas. Taxis to/from the hotels to the bus stops shouldn’t be too expensive.
      Otherwise, you could try to agree a price with a taxi driver to go direct, but it’s a long journey and might be expensive.

    We have been in Tenerife since October 19th and plan to go to Gran Canaria on January 3rd next.
    Do we have to do anything required to fly there since we will have been here for 10 weeks at that stage
    Thank you,

      Hi, It is my understanding that you are exempt from having to take a new test, but you will need to present a ‘declaration of responsibility for non-residents’ form along with documents that prove you arrived in the Canary Islands before the new requirement came into effect.

    I am going to fly from Gran Canaria to Tenerife. I was wondering how early I need to be at the airport before departure for internal flights

      Hi, If you have hand luggage only, I would say an hour. If you need to check in a bag, then you should allow a bit longer.
