Tenerife set to welcome influx of British visitors at airlift takes off

Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, will soon become more accessible to UK holiday-makers, with British Airways announcing its largest Tenerife schedule in history.

From October 28th-March 31st, British Airways is increasing its flights from London Gatwick to Tenerife South from eight flights a week to 13.

The new flights will depart London Gatwick every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the winter season.

Tenerife benefits from a sunny climate all year round, making it an ideal winter sun destination for travellers from the UK.

Families are particularly well catered for in Tenerife, with a number of safe and family friendly resorts to choose from.

Tenerife also boasts more five-star hotels than Barcelona.

While Tenerife offers sun-seekers a relaxing holiday destination with plenty of sunshine, it also has a huge range of activities for outdoor adventurers to enjoy, including hiking and mountain climbing, caving and stargazing.

There are even a number of water sports activities available for those who we want to take to the open water, such as yachting and paddle boarding. 

Alberto Bernabé, tourism minister for the Tenerife Island Government, said: “We are extremely pleased that British Airways is increasing its flight frequency from London Gatwick to Tenerife South airport this winter.

“With this being the largest capacity of British Airways seats to Tenerife in history, there has never been a better time to book your winter break and enjoy our spring-like temperatures, beautiful and varied landscape and fine gastronomy.”
