Tenerife Airport South is often referred to as Reina Sofia: the other airport is at the top of the island and is Tenerife North Los Rodeos Airport which is smaller in size and handles less passenger and flight traffic.
Unlike most other Airports in Spain, Tenerife gets busier in the winter months as Northern European tourists flock here to take advantage of the warm, winter Tenerife weather. It is the 7th busiest airport in Spain with passenger numbers reaching 7,108,073 and flights totalling in 49,779 2009.
Tenerife Airport differs from a number of the Airports that are on the Spanish mainland in that its visitor numbers actually go up over the winter period when the weather in Tenerife is the best on offer in Europe.
