Airport Transport


Package Holidays

Most tour operators arrange transport for their clients. The trend isnow not to include this in the advertised price and to charge for this service as an extra. Thischange is useful if you prefer to hire a car or use a taxi.  Look for your tour operators rep as you leave customs. The rep will check your name against there list and direct you to your transit coach.

Video of plane landing at Gran Canario Airport

This video is taken from the cockpit of the plane as it approaches Gran Canario near Las Palmas, the capital, turns to port (left) and flies down the East coast before doing a very hard turn to the starboard (right)) comming over the coast near Castillo del Romeral. As the plane levels out after the turn you can just make out 2 dark wide vertical lines just below the sea. These are the 2 runways. The plane will land on the inland runway, the one nearest the terminal building. Notice the vast arrays of wind turbines, the main dual carriageGC1 highway that runs from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to just inland of all the main resorts in the South from Playa del Ingles to Puertode Morgan
