Gran Canaria - Las Palma ( LPA  - GCLP )                                              Website :


Located 10km south of Las Palma, the capital of an island called Gran Canaria in the heart of the Canary Islands off the Atlantic Ocean up to the South-East of Morocco and belonging to Spain, the international airport and one of the archipelago and home to a significant charter traffic throughout the year. The weather is constant from 20 to 28 degrees year-round sun and ubiquitous that drains a lot of tourists from northern Europe in lack of sun. The airport consists of a terminal located in the western two runways. The 03L-21R are generally used for arrivals and departures, 03R-21L is used by the military and are open to passenger traffic during rush period traffic, in this case these tracks are specialized in taking off. Throughout the Eastern sea side of the airport is an important military base where the F18 are based in the Spanish army but also observation aircraft and transport. Local companies Binter Canaria Naysa, Islas Airways Serair are based in Las Palma, other relationships are regular Iberia, Spanair and Air Europa. The remaining traffic is carried by charter airlines. The best day of traffic on Saturday with a rush, but you have to go during the week expect to see military aircraft.

Day of spotting 17 to 20 February 2011

The departure for four days is from Charleroi February 17, 2011 aboard the Ryanair flight FR8176 (B737-800 EI-DLT 6E) which after a little over 4 hours of flight deposited us in a paradise of sun and heat, which changes many of the "flat country". Once there, we took a taxi that took us straight to the point spot for + -6 . Once the sun had turned, we bypassed the fence to reach the points of the afternoon until sunset. The return to the airport was via the bus 60 from the fuel station
to the airport where a free shuttle to the hotel we waited for Vecindario Aeroporto well deserved rest. We did a copy / paste the following days to finally return home aboard the flight Thomas Cook FQ7647 (A320-200 OO-TCP 30F) Sunday, February 20, 2011 where the return in the cold and darkness of the northern Europe, we have done well regret having left this paradise!
