Lanzarote - Arrecife ( ACE  - GCRR )                                             


The volcanic island Lanzarote forms with other Canaries, of Spanish dominion in full Atlantic Ocean to the height of North Africa. The airport is located in Arrecife, the main town on the west side of the island by the sea. It consists of a terminal located to the east of a single runway oriented 03-21. As the island is popular with tourists and holidaymakers, significant traffic from northern Europe is observed. The extremely favorable climate throughout the year drains many charter flights every month. From a traffic point of view, the regular routes to Spain motherland are provided by Iberia, Vueling and Air Europa. The inter-island routes are operated by Binter Canaria with their fleet of ATR72 and Canary Fly. The bulk of the traffic is shared between the tour operators companies with TUI tops the list, Thomas Cook, Jettime, Aer Lingus, Travel Services and Monarch. Low-cost airlines are also present in mass in Lanzarote with Easyjet, Ryanair, Eurowings, Jet2 and Transavia. Every day, cargo flights operated by Swiftair connect the island to the mainland for perishable goods or mail. There is a small military base in Arrecife, it is not uncommon to observe a military aircraft in the colors of the Spanish monarchy. Winds generally coming from the northeast, it is runway 03 which is almost always used for all traffic.

We took advantage of the inter-season to reserve in a "last minute" a cheap plane ticket from the Belgian capital and the country where the sun never hides. Departure on the morning of March 22, 2017 aboard the flight of the newly named TUI Belgium company TB3453 and the B738 OO-JAX. After 4:10 of flight, we arrived at destination. We chose the resort of Puerto del Carmen for our accommodation. This area has been chosen because it contains many nice hotels concentrated with "All Inclusive" formulas and the end of the track is only 15 minutes walk ... enough to easily link a few days Holiday and spotting moments. The traffic however being repetitive, we played the radar and free wifi of the hotel to plan our photographic shots in symbiosis with the fun, sports and culinary activities. Without further ado, discover below the harvest of these few nice days of spring!
