What is CanaryFly?

CanaryFly is a budget airline that operates cheap short-haul flights between the Canary Islands. Hugely popular amongst locals, the carrier helps more than 50,000 residents hop between the Canaries every month, often for less than the price of a bus ride between the south and north of Tenerife!

Residents of the Canaries can snap up one-way flights for as little as €5, thanks to the exclusive resident discount. But non-residents can pick up super affordable flights too. Without the resident discount, many journeys are available for as little as €20, including 6kg of hand luggage and 23kg of checked luggage.

The smallest of the islands CanaryFly visits, El Hierro was once considered to be the end of the world.
