Tenerife Sur Airport
Situated to the south of the island, at the heart of the tourist area, Tenerife Sur Airport was inaugurated by Queen Sofía on 6 November 1978.
In its first year of operations, the airport handled over a million passengers. Tenerife Sur Airport is open 24 hours a day. Currently it offers more than a hundred connecting flights and it is busiest on Fridays and during the winter season. More than 150 companies work on the premises.
To adapt airport capacity to the growing air traffic demands, significant infrastructure improvements are being carried out, particularly in the passenger terminal control area.
In 2012 a total of 8,530,817 passengers, 56,210 flights and 3,904 tonnes of cargo were handled.
