Bristol to Gran Canaria flights

Things To Do / June 6, 2017

Ryanair, Thomas Cook Airlines and Thomson Airways all fly direct to Gran Canaria from Bristol Airport.

Terminal Information – Departing

Bristol Airport has one terminal. Shops in the departure lounge sell all the basics you might need before your flight. Accessorize, Claire's Accessories, JD Sports and Traveller are perfect for supplementing your holiday wardrobe. There's a Dixon's Travel for gadgetry, a World Duty Free for little treats, and a WH Smith for in-flight reading. Remember: The Canary Islands are technically outside the EU, so your purchases will be eligible for a tax free discount. Food in the departure lounge ranges from fast food (Burger King) to fancier locally sourced fare (The Cabin). You can relax with a pre-flight drink at the Brunel Bar & Kitchen or enjoy a pre-flight coffee at Starbucks. Dexters and Soho Coffee Co round out the current offerings. There are two Aspire lounges: one is the premium 'Plus' offering. Entry starts at £20.99* for the normal lounge and £29.99* for the premium. Note that the Plus lounge is reserved for adult passengers only.

Terminal Information – Arriving

Eight buses run from the airport to popular destinations including Las Palmas, Maspalomas and Puerto de Mogan. We recommend checking the bus timetables before you fly. Car hire from Gran Canaria Las Palmas Airport is a good choice if you really want to explore the island, as public transport can be infrequent. Private transfers can be organised in advance, and some hotels in Gran Canaria provide shuttle transportation.
