TENERIFE: BY AIR
From the UK: carriers include easyJet, Jet2, Ryanair, British Airways.
Within Europe: try Aer Lingus, Air Berlin, Condor, easyJet, Transavia, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Iberia, Vueling and Air Europa.
From other Canary Islands: there are daily flights between Tenerife and Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro with Binter Canarias.
FROM THE AIRPORT:
Tenerife South is 20-30 minutes from Los Cristianos by taxi, and 2 hours from Puerto de la Cruz. The public bus service TITSA offers cheap and quick services to all parts of the island. Tenerife North Airport is 11km from Santa Cruz.
You’ll need a car to make the most of the island, especially if you want to explore the remote north-western tip. Taxis are not a viable alternative as they’ll cost you more than hiring a car for the day. See our car rental recommendations.
