The route from London (LON) to Tenerife (TCI) is extremely popular in the United Kingdom. Large numbers of tourists head to the Canary Islands every year to enjoy sun, sea and sand. Due to the warm and pleasant year round climate, the island of Tenerife is a popular destination throughout the year without any particular peak season. Between 2 and 8 flights are operated daily from London airports to Tenerife. Most of these fly to Tenerife South Reina Sofia (TFS). Services are operated from three of London's airports, London Gatwick, London Luton and London Stansted, as a direct flight and the journey is completed in a flight time of about 4 hours and 30 minutes. Airlines operating non-stop on this route include Monarch, Ryanair and Easyjet.
To buy a low cost flight it is advisable to compare prices online and purchase an air ticket well ahead of the journey.
The main destination airport in Tenerife for flights coming from London is in the south of the island with good access to the beach resorts Los Cristianos and Playa de los Americanos, for instance. There are, however, also flights going to the more mountainous northern part of the island, which land at Tenerife North Airport (TFN). The journey to Tenerife North will normally involve at least one stopover.
