Tenerife South Airport Facts

Tenerife South Airport is one of two international airports located on the island of Tenerife and the largest of the Canary Islands. It is located in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona and handled over 9 million passengers in 2014.

In the late 1960s, the island authorities of Tenerife said they needed a new airport at a new location as the existing airport did not meet technical requirements due to adverse weather conditions.

The new airport was inaugurated on 6 November 1978, by Queen SofĂ­a of Spain, to whom the airport is dedicated. The first flight was an Iberia running flight IB187 from Lanzarote, which was operated by a McDonnell Douglas DC-9. The flight landed at 10:17. By the end of its first year, 1 million passengers had passed through its doors.

In 1977, the control tower, terminal building and taxiways were completed before the Tenerife airport disaster occurred at Tenerife North Airport in March.
