Lanzarote Airport (ACE) Information
(Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain)
The only airport on Lanzarote, the north-easternmost of the Canary Islands, is situated south-west of the island's capital city, Arrecife. During the past decade, Lanzarote Airport has on average processed between five and six million passengers every year.
The recently revamped Terminal 2, the older of the two terminals, handles domestic flights throughout the Canary Islands and mainland Spain. The newer Terminal 1 greeted its first passengers in 1999 and now serves international flights, many of which originate in Germany
and Great Britain. Airlines operating at the airport include Aer Lingus, EasyJet, Iberia, Ryanair and Monarch.
A local aviation museum opened in the Guacimeta passenger terminal in 2002. Guided tours and audiovisual presentations are available to anyone interested in this small airport's long history. Of note, the aviation museum is closed on Mondays.
