Record number of air routes for Tenerife
Tenerife will have direct air connections this summer with 150 airports, through 325 routes operated by 60 companies, according to the data collected in the Aena timetable guide for the two island airports.
The season, which began on March 31st and will continue until October 26th, will offer around 5.6 million arrivals air seats, a figure that has not been reached in previous summer seasons.
Particularly noteworthy is the behaviour of the peninsular connections, where the regular forecast includes an increase of more than 100,000 more places of arrival compared to the previous summer, with a total close to 1.4 million regular places.
In international connections, air capacity improvements are made from French, Russian, Portuguese and Austrian airports as well as from Sweden, Denmark and the Czech Republic, among others. To this positive data is added the forecast of stability from the British market, despite the uncertainty and challenges that Brexit is generating to airlines.
As for the routes, Tenerife Sur has released five new connections in the first weeks of the season: Lyon and Nantes, operated by Easyjet; Maastricht, with Corendon; Reykjavik with Neos and from Nuremberg Tui Fly, to which will be added from June 15th the new route operated by TAP from Lisbon.
In the case of Tenerife North, the beginning of summer has seen the opening of eight new connections. Six are from Vueling (Coruña, Granada, Zaragoza, Valencia, Alicante, which are transferred from TFS, and their new Lisbon route); one from Norwegian (Bilbao) and another from Binter (Vigo).
