Fuerteventura Airport.

When you have arrived at an airport it is nice to have some idea of what to expect. This page gives a little information about the facilities at Fuerteventura airport.

Fuerteventura airport has recently had a massive extension that more or less doubled its capacity. The new extension has been opened, though work is still going on to reassign parts of the old building to different requirements. It is now large and spacious and has the capacity to cope with the expected growth over the next twenty years.

Flight Arrivals

The first thing you do when you arrive at Fuerteventura Airport is to pass through immigration control. This procedure is smoothly carried out and you once you have passed through the checkpoint you will enter the baggage collection area. You will get information as to which conveyor your luggage will arrive on. This area has lots of toilets, and you can also find information about such things as taxi prices from the airport to various destinations. There is help available should your luggage be lost or damaged in transit.

Flight information is provided by FlightStats, and is subject to the FlightStats Terms of Use.

Travelling onto your resort

Once you have picked up your luggage there are two sets of automatic doors will allow you out of the controlled area. Please note that when you leave this area airport security will not allow you back in so please make sure you have collected all your luggage. If you have a tour operator then they will greet you just outside these doors. The coach car park is just outside the terminal building to the right, and as it is now a big building it’s best to make use of the trolleys. These cost €1 andalso take pound coins; you will get your money back when you return it to the trolley park areas.

When you exit the baggage collection area, and if you have flown with a holiday company, the reps will be waiting for you here. If you have hired a car, that is to be picked up from the airport, the car hire offices are between the two exits. To your right are various desks used by different tour companies on different days.

Fuerteventura Airport Taxis

For those making their own way to their resort there is a taxi rank outside the Arrivals.. Although the queues, at peak times, seem quite long, there are plenty of taxis and they come along every few minutes so you will not be waiting long. Taxis are strictly controlled and have meters so you will know how much they cost. For up to date taxi prices see our Getting About page.
