Falcon’s Guide to Lanzarote Airport
Ah, the airport: a place where you can find yourself having to keep the gang entertained for quite some hours. This can sometimes prove testing, but if you read our helpful guides, you’ll know exactly what’s on offer during your time there.
Nearly 2.4 million visitors flew to Lanzarote in 2014 – if you’re lucky enough to have booked a holiday to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands this year, take a look at this guide to the island’s airport.
When you touch down at the airport, there are a number of buses that you can hop on from both terminals T1 and T2 to get to your accommodation.
- Route 22: Airport – Arrecife, €1.40, every 25 minutes
- Route 23: Arrecife – Airport – Playa Honda, €1. 40, every 50 minutes, Sundays and public holidays only
- Route 161: Airport – Playa del Carmen (€1.40) and Playa Blanca (€3.30), every 30 minutes
- Route 261: Airport – Playa Blanca (€3.30) – Puerto del Carmen (€1.40), every 30 minutes, Monday to Friday except public holidays
If you prefer to take a taxi, always take one from the terminal. The minimum charge is €3.15 and then it is a rate of €0.55-0.63 per kilometre.
On your return, be sure to make the most out of the airport’s duty free shopping. This means that you are exempt from payment of duty and so save a fair few euros! Pick up some organic beauty products at Aloe Plus Lanzarote, a pretty piece of jewellery from Lava, new branded clothing (Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger) at Collection and a last minute gift or perfumes from The Ocean Company.
Food keeps everybody happy and maintains energy levels! Fill up at one of the many restaurants, bars and fast food joints in the airport. These include Burger King, Camden Food, Upper Crust, Caffe di Fiore, Four Arrows and Coffee Republic. Whether you want to grab a hot beverage or sit down for a meal – the choice is yours.
It can get pretty hectic in the airport, so it’s reassuring to know that these safety checks are in place for the whole family. The Meeting Point in T1 means that if younger family members get lost, they know exactly where to go. There is also medical care available on site, should anyone require first aid or emergency attention.
Relax and take it easy in the Lanzarote VIP Lounge: €23.50 for adults and €11.25 for kids. Here you can sit down on the comfy couches and take advantage of free Wi-Fi, television, drinks, snacks and newspapers. It is located on the second floor of T1 between gates 8 and 9, where you can stay until you are ready to board the embarking plane.
A friendly airport with amenities to keep adults and kids entertained, you will receive a warm welcome when landing in Lanzarote and it will be a fond farewell when you depart. Take a look at the latest deals from Falcon to get your flights to the Canary Islands booked.
