With both golden and black beaches to explore, striking volcanic landscapes to discover and unique local charm to uncover, its no surprise that so many holidaymakers choose to book flights to Tenerife and discover everything the island has to offer. Year-round sunshine and picturesque beaches are often what draw travellers to the Canary Island, but it is an island that offers much more. Visitors can experience the vibrancy of the Carnival of Santa Cruz, where street musicians and minstrels entertain revellers for ten days. The Cliffs of the Giants, a remarkable mountain formation along the Teno range, are also a must visit and are best seen up close. These are just a few examples of why millions of tourists choose to visit the island and also why so many visit time and time again.

Ideally situated just off the coast of West Africa, Tenerife has the well-earned reputation of the perfect holiday destination. This is not only because flights to Tenerife from the UK tend to be relatively short, but this idyllic island also has a warm Mediterranean climate that means it has a mild temperature and sunshine all-year round. Of course, how long Tenerife flights take depends on where you fly from in the United Kingdom. However, flights tend to take between 4 and 5 hours as a general rule. If you’re flying from more northerly regions like Newcastle-upon-Tyne or Edinburgh, flight times are usually around 4 hours and 40 minutes. For those who are booking flights to Tenerife from the south, flight time is around 4 hours and 10 minutes.

When you arrive in Tenerife, it’s worth knowing that two main airports serve the island. The main one that international tourists will be familiar with is the Reina Sofia Airport in the south of the island. The northern airport is Los Rodeos and is predominantly used for flights to Tenerife from Spain and other Canary Islands. Fortunately for travellers to Tenerife, Reina Sofia is nearby to many of the main beaches and resorts on the island and airport transfers can be quite short. This airport receives inbound flights from all major cities in the United Kingdom, including London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and Liverpool.
