Flights to Gran Canaria – Several climates in one place
Apparently Gran Canaria is sometimes called a miniature continent. Why? The island’s wide variety of landscapes and unusual geology mean the weather can change within a few miles. It isn’t an enormous island and it can feel pretty weird going from scorching heat to snow within a few thousand feet. Flights to Gran Canaria land you on a pretty island of just under 800,000 people, all of whom must – we reckon – be sartorially challenged most of the time coping with the climate. Gran Canaria Airport is Spain's fifth busiest and the busiest in the Canaries. A massive 10 million passengers spread across almost 115,000 flights took flights to Gran Canaria throughout 2007, two million of whom then headed for Lanzarote, Tenerife and Fuerteventura.
130 miles from North Africa
Gran Canaria is out in the Atlantic Ocean, 130 miles or so from North West Africa. Flights to this hot little place depart from a whole load of UK airports covering England, Scotland, Eire, Ireland and Wales. Gran Canaria flights leave from Aberdeen, Belfast, Cardiff, Birmingham, Doncaster, Gatwick, Dublin London Luton, Norwich, Nottingham and Stanstead. So no matter where you’re leaving from, you’ll find a suitable airport close or close-ish to home.
