Lanzarote Airport

Lanzarote Airport, also known as Arrecife Airport, is the airport serving the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands and is located 5km southwest of the town of Arrecife. The airport handles more than 5 million passengers a year on average with most flights to European airports and domestic Spanish airports as well as a large proportion of tourists. The airport was built in the 1930s when connections were required with the other islands and the mainland.

The airport has 2 terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, where Terminal 1 is mainly for domestic and international flights and Terminal 2 mainly for inter-island flights. Travelling between the 2 terminals is easy, and even the physically-disabled passengers will find no problem in navigating around the areas. The VIP lounge is currently closed for renovations so be sure to check out the new and improved lounge when it is ready! Anyone can use the lounge by buying the passes online or on the spot.

Lanzarote airport undertakes intensive cultural activities to bring the airport closer to citizens and to promote the island of Lanzarote, which is declared a world model of sustainable development by the World Tourism Organisation, offering interesting programmes with content in 3 different languages. The Lanzarote Airport Aeronautical Museum is a space to learn about the development of aviation on the island, as well as the evolution and functions of the airport facilities. The Environmental Classroom, intended for all ages and particularly for children and young people, displays very clear environmental messages which can be put into practice and help to raise awareness of the importance of respecting nature and the environment.

A fast food restaurant and bar are available at the airport for a quick bite before leaving the airport to explore the island's breathtaking craters and national parks. Otherwise, shop for duty-free products at the shopping area with a wide range of alcohol, tobacco and jewellery.
