TFS Tenerife Reina Sofia Airport

Aeropuerto or TFS Airport Reina Sofia, is the busiest airport in Tenerife and the 7th busiest in the whole of Spain. It is located in the South of Tenerife in close proximity to the major resorts of Playa Las Americas and Los Cristianos. It is well connected to the rest of the island as it is close to two main highways the TF1 and TF5.

Although not a luxurious or particularly large airport it still boasts the following amenities - restaurants (Pizza Hut and Burger King, from memory...), bars, shops - gift and duty free, ATMs, a bank, post office, currency exchange facilities.

Getting to and from the airport is quite easy as the taxis are quite reasonably priced if you are travelling to the resorts in the south. If you are venturing to the resorts in the north of Tenerife you might want to get a local bus which takes around an hour and is very well priced and is air conditioned. Car rental companies at Tenerife Sur airport are represented by Hertz, Avis, Europcar and several others.

You can find out more information about the Tenerife South (TFS) airport at the official site here.

CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS:

Christmas is celebrated differently here to the UK. The Spanish have their main celebrations on the 6th January, 12 days after our Christmas day. They still celebrate the tradition of gift giving but this is done on the 6th January instead of the 25th December. This is called Los Reyes and instead of old Saint Nick in a sleigh driven by reindeer delivering the gifts it is three kings on camel back.

Most towns have a celebration on the eve of Los Reyes (5th January) where three kings will go through the streets on camel back and give gifts to the children. This can work out very well for you if you are over here for Christmas and the New Year as it means you can exchange gifts with family and friends on Christmas day, as is our tradition. You can then enjoy the Spanish tradition and exchange more gifts on the 6th January, two Christmas Days, it's great.

However you wish to celebrate Christmas if you are in Tenerife you can be sure of a warm welcome and sunny skies, that beats any gift in our book.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

We hope you have enjoyed our newsletter, until next time, think of sunny days.
