Lanzarote Departures

Lanzarote Airport handled almost five million passengers in 2010, and is therefore one of the larger airports serving the Canary Isle. The airport is found on the island of Lanzarote, which is the furthest north-east of all the Canaries, and has the official airport code of ACE. Lanzarote Airport can also be referred to as the Guasimeta Airport, due to its close proximity with this area on the island. Other areas nearby include Playa Honda, Las Playas, Playa del Cable and Puerto del Carmen, as well as Costa Teguise, and many of these areas are popular amongst tourists. The airport is also only five kilometres from Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote. Passengers on Lanzarote Airport departures will find all the facilities they require, and a wide choice of airline companies and destinations.

Passengers departing from Lanzarote Airport can use a bus to reach the airport, a taxi or their own vehicle, as the airport offers a number of transport options. The major road leading to the airport is the LZ-2 motorway, or the Carretera de Arrecife a Yaiza. This road leads directly from Arrecife to the airport, and also continues towards the south of the island to Playa Blanca. The airport is also easily accessed from the north and west of the island, by a number of prominent motorways, and passengers will find adequate parking for their vehicles at Lanzarote Airport. Buses provide public transport, as there are no train services on the island, and there are two bus routes known as the Circle Line 22 and Circle Line 23 available. Passengers can travel by bus to the airport from Arrecife, and from most other nearby locations. Taxis are available from all corners of Lanzarote.

Lanzarote Airport consists of two terminal buildings, each handling departure flights from a variety of airline companies. The buildings are referred to as Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, and both can be considered as fairly new constructions. Terminal 1 was recently built as a larger passenger building was needed for the increasing number of passengers making use of the airport, and now offers a capacity of six million per annum. It is a two-level terminal, with all departure procedures handled on the first floor, and arrival processes on the ground floor. The terminal has a total of 43 check-in desks, and twelve boarding gates. In the check-in area there is also a chemist, an airport information service desk and a lottery shop.

Terminal 2 of Lanzarote Airport has been designed over the old airport terminal, and is used for all inter-island passenger traffic. The old terminal featured a very special mural created by César Manrique, and with the new construction, the mural was carefully preserved and integrated into the design of the terminal. The departures hall of Terminal 2 has ticket sales offices, six check-in desks and an automatic Binter machine, as the terminal is used by Binter Canarias, for all flights to and from Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro, the other six Canary Islands. There are also five boarding gates for the terminal, a multi-shop, cafeteria and an Aena Information point.

Another interesting feature of Lanzarote Airport is the Aviation Museum, which was put together in response to the interest of both tourists and local people. The museum provides some fascinating facts in regards to the island’s aviation heritage, with a number of audio visual presentations. The Aviation Museum at Lanzarote Airport is open from 10:00 to 14:00, every day, except on Mondays, and tours can also be given if there is sufficient interest. Further facilities within Lanzarote Airport for departing passengers include ATMs by various banks, a VIP lounge, first aid facilities and large shopping areas with an array of retail outlets, as well as the restaurants of Burger King, Henry J. Beans, Pizza Hut, Upper Crust and Medas Self-service.

Disabled passengers, or passengers with reduced mobility are welcomed at Lanzarote Airport, as all terminals and facilities are adapted for their needs. There are lifts to the upper levels of Terminal 1, and all pavements have ramps for easier wheelchair access. Adequate toilet facilities are available throughout the terminals, and special parking spaces are reserved for easy access to the entrances of the buildings. Passengers on Lanzarote Airport departure flights can also request additional assistance from their airline company, or from staff at the airport. Special attention will be given to their needs, and help will be provided with all departure procedures.
