Lanzarote Airport is a relatively small international aerodrome with a capacity of handling 6 million passengers per annum.



The Terminal 1 built in 1999 copes with the demand of national and international flights while the revamped Terminal 2 born in the seventies dealing with domestic flights among the islands. You find more on the history of Lanzarote Airport on wikipedia.

Airport transfers are readily available except there is a national or local fiesta is taking place.

Taxis are the easiest and fastest solution to get you anywhere from the airport (check taxi rates here) but there are shuttle services to choose from too.

Public transport buses GUAGUA [WAH WAH] also easily take you to Puerto Del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Arrecife. Mind that if you go to Costa Teguise you need to change lines in Arrecife’s INTERCAMBIADOR. Check out the bus timetable here. Most drivers speak English and happily assist you through the journey even if you try to speak Spanish with them.

There are no underground or any other rail services available on the island thus the possibility to reach Arrecife Airport by these means is none. Also, there isn’t any known footpath to reach the terminals either.

Plane spotters may take pleasure into a footpath, which runs along the shore from Arrecife to Puerto Del Carmen. It runs right behind the airfield placing passer byes under the roaring planes. The other end of the runaway runs into a HiperDino store on the other side of the motorway but you will notice that anyway if you do shopping there. Mind that the Tower may choose not to use one or the other end according to weather conditions.
