Arrivals at Tenerife Airport - FAQs

Which is the main airport in Tenerife?

Tenerife South airport is the larger of the two international airports in Tenerife. The other is Tenerife North airport.

Why does Tenerife have 2 airports?

During the late 1960s, Tenerife authorities recognised the need for a new airport in a different location because the existing airport, Tenerife North airport, didn't meet the necessary technical standards, primarily due to challenging weather conditions, particularly poor visibility during foggy weather. Tenerife South airport is located in the south of the island, which experiences more sunshine and warmer weather, and is why most tourists opt for this part of the island.

What is the difference between TFN and TFS?

TFN is the airport code for Tenerife North, TFS is the airport code of Tenerife South.
