Tenerife South Airport (TFS), which is also called Tenerife South-Reina Sofia Airport, is well known by many vacationers from Britain and other parts of Europe. It is the gateway to Tenerife, one of Spain’s top vacation resorts in the Canary Islands. The airport is just 40 miles (60km) from Santa Cruz, but relatively close to resorts on the west coast of the island.
Although the airport is small, there is a fair selection of restaurants and shops. Passengers wanting reading material, gifts, souvenirs, a snack or quick meal will find that the airport caters well to their needs.
Tenerife South Airport is served by a number of low-cost carriers, including easyJet and Ryanair, which connect the airport to many cities across Europe. The airport handles more than 7 million passengers each year.
