Tenerife Norte, April 2007

Tenerife Norte is one of two airports on the island of Tenerife. Flag carrier Iberia operates usually 2 flights a day with an A340-300. EC-IIH, "Maria Barbara de Braganza", settles gracefully back to the ground again.

EC-IKQ is one of 3 ATR-72s operated by Islas Airways. Los Rodeos is Islas' homebase, flights connecting, as the name suggests, the Canary Islands.

LTU is one of the few non-spanish carriers operating to Los Rodeos. Flight time to Düsseldorf will be a bit more than 4 hours.

In competition to Iberia, Air Europa also operates heavy equipment into TFN. Operating a flight from Madrid, Airbus A330-202 EC-JQG, delivered last year, is only seconds from touchdown.

Formed by Iberia in 1988, Binter is another Inter-island operator. A fleet of 13 ATR-72s are cruising around the islands and one Boeing 737-400 (see below) is used for mainland destinations. EC-JBI, a colorful ATR-72-212A, is lining up runway 30.
