Tenerife South Airport - TFS

Tenerife Island, Spain (ES)

Getting around the airport

Single terminal

Tenerife South Airport lies on the southern tip of Tenerife, 60km away from the island’s capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It is the larger of two airports on the island (the other is Tenerife North Airport, handling mostly inter-island and domestic flights), and the largest international airport in the Canary Islands.

There are three levels, but you'll mostly only use Level 0 (ground floor), which is divided into two areas:

  • Check-in areas for Schengen and non-Schengen flights
  • The Arrivals area with passport control, baggage claim, and customs

You'll find Gates 1-34 running from the west to the east side. Level 1 has a chapel and airside VIP lounge. There is a small selection of restaurants both landside and airside, and decent shopping options.
