It's about 60 kilometres far from Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife. You can continue your trip on a wide range of rental cars, buses or taxis to reach every part of the island.

It was built in the late sixties, the island's authorities said they needed a new airport at a new location because the north airport did not meet the technical requirements due to adverse weather conditions. The airport was opened by Queen Sofia on 6 November 1978. The first flight was an Iberia running flight from Lanzarote.
