To get in and out of the airport, city buses are available. They usually take Route 22, which links the airport to the island capital of Arrecife in a matter of 10 minutes.

Route 23 is the transportation option during Sundays and public holidays. It links the airport to both Arrecife and Playa Honda. However, if your ultimate destination is much further like Playa Blanca or Puerto del Carmen, Route 61 is what you should take.

For those who would rather not take the bus, a taxi service is available at the two terminals of the airport. However, it is important to note that the weekday rates may not be the same as the weekend fares. The latter is going to be more expensive by a few cents. The taxis from the airport ranks are duly authorized. Make sure that you catch a ride from there and not from the ones that are offering their services from any other point. You can request for a bill from the driver in case you have any complaints.
