Tenerife welcomes increased UK airlift ahead of key summer season

Tenerife is set to become even more accessible to UK travellers this summer with a number of airlines increasing flight frequency to the island.

This includes a new weekly service from Flylolo.com, which will operate between Manchester and Tenerife this summer (July 17th-September 5th), as well as throughout the winter season from Gatwick, Manchester and Glasgow.

In addition to Flylolo.com, British Airways has boosted its direct flights from London Gatwick to Tenerife this summer, with the number of weekly flights increasing from six to 13.

Jet2.com will operate more than 50 weekly flights to Tenerife from across its nine UK bases during peak periods this summer, which is seven more than last summer.

Ryanair is also increasing the number of weekly flights from Manchester Airport to Tenerife South Airport this year, with the airline increasing services from nine to ten a week throughout the summer and from six to nine a week during the winter.

With its diverse and beautiful landscape, all year-round spring-like temperatures and high-quality family-friendly resorts, Tenerife is a perfect choice for Brits looking for a sunshine getaway this summer.

Those looking to combine relaxation with more of an adventure won’t be disappointed either, as Tenerife has everything from mountain climbing and cycling, to whale watching, stargazing, and water sports such as surfing and paddle boarding.

Alberto Bernabé, tourism minister for the Tenerife Island Government, said: “We are extremely pleased that many of the UK’s airlines are increasing their services to Tenerife this year.

“These new services come at a great time for us as last year we saw a record number of visitor arrivals from the UK, with more than two million in just one year.”
