The flight time between Aberdeen International Airport in Scotland to Tenerife South Airport in the Canary Islands is around five hours. On average, the flight takes four hours and 50 minutes in total. This is only about 45 minutes more than flights to Tenerife from London and south coast airports.
There is a weekly direct service between Aberdeen and Tenerife on Sundays between May and September. This increases to a twice weekly service on Wednesdays and Sundays between October and April. This provides more flight options and seat availability for travellers looking for some winter sun. See the TUI Flight Timetable for more information.
After departing Aberdeen, youll fly south west over Scotland across the Firth of Clyde. After flying over the Isle of Arran and Campbeltown, youll turn slightly to travel over Northern Ireland and the Republic. Then its over the Celtic Sea and the Atlantic waters. Youll fly close to the Portuguese island of Madeira as you continue south, landing in Tenerife from the west of the island.
Tenerifes main holiday season runs throughout the summer, so if you want to secure low cost flights it's cheaper to fly over the quieter months. January is the cheapest month of the year to fly, although great deals are also available through winter and spring. Demand begins to rise in May, ready for the hot summer.
