Lanzarote Airport (ACE) serves the sunny Canary Island of Lanzarote and is conveniently located 3 miles southwest of the capital city, Arrecife.
In addition to receiving a much-needed facelift during the 1990s, a section of the airport’s Gaucimeta Terminal was dedicated to serving as an aviation museum in 2002 in response to tourists’ keen interest in the island’s aviation history.
With roughly 5 million travelers on more than 46,000 flights to Lanzarote Airport each year, the facility is very busy, especially during the summer season. The terminals are rather small and often get busy (but seldom chaotic), especially on Thursdays when several British flights to Lanzarote Airport arrive.
Lanzarote Airport has two terminals. Terminal 1, which services international flights, comprises two levels with arrivals on the lower level and departures on the upper level. Terminal 2 caters for flights traveling between the islands surrounding Lanzarote. The terminals are within walking distance of each other.
