La Palma flight information

If you take a trip, then you'll experience something

This often starts already at the travel agency. Not as often as before - but still - less trained travel agents mix up the Canary Island of La Palma with the capital of Mallorca, also named Palma. So be careful, that you end up on the right island!

Who choose the Canary Island La Palma as a holiday destination, has many ways of arrival. Of course the direct flights with destination Airport Santa Cruz de La Palma (SPC) are the first choice, which can be found in the actual summer and winter schedules of La Palma 24 - click here.

La Palma is not a stronghold of tourism - which has only one disadvantage: You have to dig deeper into your pockets to pay for the flight, than for a trip to the neighboring islands of Tenerife or Gran Canaria. So that means packages from tour operators can be a cheaper holiday option. However: Even a self-created trip is economical if you know how.

From the airport of La Palma to your holiday accommodation

The final stage of the journey to La Palma is always the trip from the airport to your holiday home. The airport is located eight kilometers south of the island`s capital Santa Cruz on the east side of the island. Package travelers will be picked up by buses of the tour operators. Vacationers who have booked a car with a car rental company such as La Palma24 rent a car will have a convenient final stage. Just turn after the luggage pick to the left and follow the signs "Parking" until you get to the elevators and escalators. Take the elevator or escalator to the level -3, parking deck S-2. When you reach the parking deck, turn left into the area A. At the airport car park the staff is waiting for you and takes care of the paperwork quickly and efficiently. Do not forget your driving license! The rental car will be handed over – upon departure just drop of the car at the airport.

Furthermore buses bring tourists to their destination. The busses on La Palma are named Gua Gua and they start from the airport to the island`s capital Santa Cruz every half hour from Monday to Saturday from 7:15 am to 10:45 pm and on Sundays from 7:45 am to 10:45 pm. There you change the bus to your final destination. Holidaymakers who want to use the bus during their vacation can purchase a so-called Bono ticket. You will get detailed information about these prepaid tickets at the bus station in Los Llanos.

The timetables and fares as well as the expected arrival time can be checked in the TILP app. The app can be downloaded free of charge from the Google Play and App Store.

Of course at the airport there are also taxis waiting for travelers. The basic charge is 1,70 euros and 1,10 to 1,30 euros per kilometre for a one-way trip. You also can deal with the taxi driver regarding the costs for one round trip. In other words: calculating is required – a rental car can be cheaper for longer trips! You pay for example for a taxi ride from the airport to Puerto Naos in the west of the island currently between 37 and 42 euros.
