Cheap flights between the Canary Islands in Spain

Canaryfly is a low-cost regional airline company operating flights between the Canary Islands and, even though it started its activity less than a decade ago, we may say that today it is a well-established, trustworthy and convenient provider of travel services in the region.

If you are planning your holidays in the Canaries, why not make the most of your travelling time and visit more than one island? You can book seats either online or once there at their airport offices. When you search for your flight online, you are granted access to discounts and promotions and get the chance to fly between islands for really low fares with or without checked baggage.

Most flights are direct ones and can last from 30 to 45 minutes, however, when covering longer routes such as those starting in an island from the western province and its final destination being one of the eastern islands, the system will offer a combination of flights with a short layover halfway.

Canaryfly airlines flight routes between the Canary Islands

-From Gran Canaria, you can fly to Tenerife (Los Rodeos/Tenerife-North airport), Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and La Palma. UPDATE: Since October 2018, travellers can also fly from Gran Canaria to El Hierro with CanaryFly.

-Canaryfly also connects Tenerife-North airport with Gran Canaria, La Palma, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

-From La Palma, you can travel with them to Tenerife-North, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote.

-The routes covered from Lanzarote reach destinations like Gran Canaria, Tenerife and La Palma.

-And finally, Canaryfly also operates flights departing from Fuerteventura towards La Palma, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

Notice that distances between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are so short that travellers normally use ferry boats to take that trip, as is the case with those wanting to visit the minor islands of La Gomera and El Hierro, which can be easily accessed by sea from La Palma or Tenerife.

Our experience flying with Canaryfly

One of the main highlights of this regional budget airline is its punctuality when it comes to boarding as well as arriving on time at the final destination. I have been their passenger more than six times so far and, in my view, their handling of the whole process is just remarkable.

The in-flight experience is a relaxed, smooth one, with more than acceptable legroom and modest onboard service (which is understandable considering the average length of the journey). They used to serve complimentary coffee, biscuits and sweets, although I only got a glass of water in my last two flights with them. I also believe they make a difference by playing chill-out music during take-off and landing, plus lately they have included radio commercials by their sponsors, which enables the company to keep their fares low.

How to get to La Gomera in the Canary Islands

The fact that La Gomera is a minor island of the western province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Spain often leads potential visitors to undervalue it in favour of the major capital islands, Tenerife and Gran Canaria, the ones that are featured in travel magazines more often. Far from the assumption that this smaller island offers less to see and do, La Gomera in the Canaries is a true paradise for nature lovers which was declared World Biosphere Reserve in 2011, boasting nice temperatures all year round, virgin volcanic landscapes, national parks with prehistoric vegetation, breathtaking cliffs and viewpoints, natural pools and beaches. What is more, aside from taking the opportunity to discover and enjoy a rich local gastronomy, travellers may equally join a variety of hiking tours and day boat trips, as well as star gazing gatherings, since this island –just like La Palma– is an excellent spot for observing the sky and so a favourite destination for astronomy enthusiasts.

La Gomera: how to arrive

Whether you choose to catch a flight to La Gomera or opt for reaching the island by ferry boat, it is mandatory that you travel to Tenerife first, as all connections are made from Tenerife North International airport and the Port of Los Cristianos in the south of the island, linked to Tenerife South airport by bus line 343. Since many national and international airlines operate flights to both passenger terminals, Tenerife seems like the perfect layover and a convenient stop before visiting La Gomera.

Flights to La Gomera island in the Canaries

The airport in La Gomera consists of a single passenger terminal whose runway is enabled for the landing of small aircrafts only. Thus, if you want to travel to La Gomera by air, you will need to purchase a plane ticket from the Binter Canarias regional company, operating two flights per day from Tenerife North airport towards the air terminal in Playa de Santiago. The journey takes roughly 30 minutes and ticket fares start from 12 euros. Upon arrival, you can either hire a car from Cicar or PlusCar or use public transportation to commute to Valle Gran Rey (bus line 6) and the capital city San Sebastián de La Gomera (bus line 7).

Travelling to La Gomera by ferry boat

Fred Olsen is the main company in charge of transporting passengers from Los Cristianos to San Sebastián de la Gomera (the capital city of the island). Its express ferry boats cover the distance between Tenerife and La Gomera in only 40 minutes, even though travellers may buy tickets for a larger ferry which takes 70 minutes. In the second case, you will be able to take your car with you, sunbathe on the deck and spot dolphins swimming by. There are five scheduled departures per day and fares range from 8 to 34 euros.
