The route from Glasgow (GLA) to Tenerife (TCI) is an extremely popular flight route with tourists in the United Kingdom. Tenerife is a favourite destination throughout the year due to the excellent climate on the Canary Islands, attracting thousands of holidaymakers every year. The distance of 2000 miles is covered in a flight time of approximately 4 hours and 40 minutes from take-off to landing. There are up to 4 flights a day on this route operated by low-cost carrier Ryanair. These are, however, operated from Glasgow Prestwick to Tenerife South. Jet2 operates a service from Glasgow International Airport to Tenerife, landing at Tenerife South Reina Sofia as a direct flight three times a week. Getting to Tenerife North Airport from Glasgow involves at least one stopover.
There is no single peak holiday season on the Canary Islands so that the prices of an air ticket will not fluctuate a great deal. However, to purchase a particularly low cost flight it is advisable to compare prices online and choose a midweek departure avoiding school holidays if at all possible. Travel is usually cheaper if booked well in advance so a little planning is always an advantage. Passengers should be aware of the fact that some low cost airlines will charge extra for hold luggage.
The destination airport in the south of the island, Tenerife South Reina Sofia Airport is well connected to all major resorts and towns and villages on the island.
