  • If you do not get a direct flight from your place of origin, you always have the option of coming via Gran Canaria (LPA), about 45 minutes, or Tenerife (North Airport or TFN, also called Los Rodeos), about 30 minutes either with Binter Canariasor Canaryfly

If you come from outside of Spain:

  • There are direct flights to La Palma from European cities such as Frankfurt, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Munich, Brussels, London or Amsterdam, with companies such as Condor, Easyjet and Eurowings.
  • Connecting flights via Madrid, Barcelona, Tenerife North and Gran Canaria.

By Boat

For travel by sea, companies such as Fred. Olsen offer daily connections from the port Los Cristianos in Tenerife. The company Acciona makes a stop at La Palma in its route between the Spanish Peninsula and the Canary Islands. Depending on the boat, the journey takes between 2.5 and 4 hours.
