Terminal Information – Arriving

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Airport is served by eight public buses. These routes run to the island's major towns and resorts including Maspalomas, Puerto de Mogan and Las Palmas. We recommend checking the bus timetables before flying so you know exactly where you're going once you arrive. Public transport in the islands can be quite infrequent, so if you want to do a lot of exploring we recommend hiring a car at Gran Canaria Airport. This is also the best option if you're staying off the beaten path. Some companies offer private transfers on the island, or this can be organised by your hotel.

Practical Information

You need a valid passport to fly from Glasgow to Gran Canaria. We recommend arriving at the airport around two hours before flight departure, and certainly no later than 90 minutes. Give yourself extra time to get through security during school holidays.
