Fuerteventura Airport

Fuerteventura Airport

Situated close to the capital Puerto del Rosario and only 10 minutes from the resort of Caleta de Fuste (and about 35 minutes from Corralejo), this new modern airport is impressive in design.

Location, Location .....

As you can see by the picture on the right - the airport is next to the sea giving a great first impression when you step out of the plane.

Plane to Terminal

Some flights get the 'tunnel' treatment but at busy times the plane parks a little distance from the terminal. Buses are laid on to take you there.

Shops

There are a few shops and cafes on both levels plus Car rental offices in the arrival and departure areas but the shops are nothing special. English and German language magazines, books, guides and newspapers are available. English newspapers are avilable in all the resorts - some of which are printed in the Canaries so they are issued on the day. Other papers are imported a day late.

Shops are open from 7:30am till 10pm.

Duty Free

The 'Duty Free' shops in the departure area are more expensive than normal supermarkets - so before you leave your resort buy your booze, fags, cameras and perfume there.

Baggages and Trolleys

You'll need a one euro coin to unlock a baggage trolley but a pound coin will also do the job if you haven't got any. (You will be able to get it back when you return the trolley so don't worry about losing on the exchange.)

Reps

If you are traveling on a package holiday and have a coach transfer to your resort, look out for your representative who will sort you out.

Taxis & Taxi Prices

Taxis are parked straight in front of you as you come out of the arrivals area from the main airport building (a taxi journey from the airport to Corralejo will cost you about 45 euros).
