There are many airports in Canary Islands. However, not all Canary airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest Canary Islands airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Canary Islands.

The Canary Islands (Spanish Islas Canarias) (28 deg 06' N, 15 deg 24' W) are an archipelago of the Kingdom of Spain consisting of seven islands of volcanic origin in the Atlantic Ocean. They are located off the north-western coast of Africa (Morocco and the Western Sahara). The nearest island is 108 km from the northwest African coast. They form an autonomous community of Spain.

The name derives probably from Berber North African tribes (the Canarii), in Berber language the islands are called Tkanaren, or possibly the Latin term Insularia Canaria meaning Island of the Dogs, a name applied originally only to the island of Gran Canaria. It is thought that the dense population of an endemic breed of large and fierce dogs was the characteristic that most struck the few ancient Romans who established contact with the islands by the sea.

The Teide volcano on Tenerife is the highest mountain in Spain, and the third largest volcano on Earth. According to the position of the islands with respect to the trade winds, the climate can be mild and wet or very dry.

The economy is based primarily on tourism, which makes up 32% of the GDP. The Canaries receive about 10 million tourists per year. Construction makes up nearly 20% of the GDP and tropical agriculture, primarily bananas and tobacco, are grown for export to Europe and the Americas. Ecologists are concerned that the resources, especially in the more arid islands, are being overexploited but there are still many agricultural resources like tomatoes, potatoes, onions, cochineal, sugarcane, grapes, vines, dates, oranges, lemons, figs, wheat, barley, corn, apricots, peaches and almonds. Test attempts to replant the original native "cloud forests" have been successful to date, but it will be many years before this unique biome can be restored to the high elevation lands.

On Tenerife, tourism is concentrated more in the south of the island, which is hotter and drier and especially around well developed resorts Playa de las Americas, and Los Cristianos. More recently coastal development has spread northwards from Playa de las Americas and now encompasses the former small enclave of La Caleta.

The Area know as Costa Adeje (Las Americas-Los Cristianos), comprises many world-class facilities and leisure opportunities besides sea and sand, such as quality shopping centres, golf courses( 9 in the island), restaurants, aquaparks, animal parks, a theatre suitable for musicals or a Congress Hall, all in a very characteristic Las Vegas-like aesthetic.

In the more lush and green north of the island the main development for tourism has been in the town of Puerto de la Cruz . The town itself has kept some of its old-harbour town charm mixed with northern European influences. Still, the tourist boom in the 60s changed the outlook of the town, making it cosy and cosmopolitan at the same time, and a favourite for the more mature traveller, and notably the German and Spanish tourist.

The island of Lanzarote's name in the native Guanche language was Tite-Roy-Gatra, which may mean "the red mountains". The island has its own international airport, Arrecife Airport, which receives around 5.5 million passengers per year. Tourism has been the mainstay of the island's economy for the past fifty years. Other industries include agriculture.

Lanzarote's climate ranges from mild to hot during the year. Temperatures in the summer are between 30 C and 35 C during the day and about 20 C at night. Its winter daytime temperature is between 20 C and 25 C and the nighttime temperature is between 13 C and 16 C. Lanzarote is surrounded with trade winds. The water temperature at the Atlantic is at 22 C during the summer and 17 C during the winter months. (airports)
