TFS Airport

Tenerife Sur

Situated to the south of the island, at the heart of the tourist area (near to the towns of El Medano and Los Abrigos), Tenerife Sur Airport (Tenerife South-Reina Sofia Airport) was inaugurated by Queen Sofía on 6 November 1978. In its first year of operations, the airport handled over a million passengers.
To adapt airport capacity to the growing air traffic demands, significant infrastructure improvements are being carried out, particularly in the passenger terminal control area.
