Fuerteventura is one of the Spanish Canary Islands and is a popular summer holiday and beach resort destination. It is known as the island of eternal spring because of year round sunshine and warm weather; surfboarders, scuba divers and big game fishermen all flock to Fuerteventura pursue their passion.
The gateway to Fuerteventura is via Fuerteventura Airport, located near the capital Puerto del Rosario.
Several budget-fare carriers provide cheap flights to Fuerteventura. Among them are airberlin and TUIfly (based in Germany), and XL Airways (U.K. based).
Two of the largest no-frills, low-cost airlines in Europe, easyJet and Ryanair (both U.K. based) provide cheap flights to Fuerteventura.
