Air Europa will inaugurate weekly service from Miami to Tenerife in the Canary Islands on June 20 with flights every Saturday from Miami International Airport to Tenerife’s North Airport. Flights will depart Miami at 5 p.m. and arrive in Tenerife the next day at 7:35 a.m. The return flight departs Tenerife at 1:50 p.m., arriving in Miami at 4:50 p.m. the same day.
The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is crowned by the dormant volcano of Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak at 12,195 feet, and has miles of beaches to the south and unspoiled villages surrounded by vineyards and banana plantations in the north.
“Up until now it was difficult for Americans to get to the Canary Islands,” explains Javier Piñanes, director of the Tourist Office of Spain in New York. “This new service will open up a new warm-weather destination for Americans.”
