History

The need to fly over Lanzarote on the Seville-Canary Islands route resulted in the construction of an ancillary air field at Llanos de Guacimeta, in 1936; this was the first step towards the creation of an aerodrome on the island.

In the mid 1940s, the Air Force approved the construction of an aerodrome on Lanzarote, as part of a defence plan for the Canary Islands. The aerodrome was located five kilometres west of Arrecife, on the Guacimeta coast, within the municipality of San Bartolomé.

In 1946, Lanzarote airport was provisionally opened to civil traffic, and part of the building that housed the military annexes was used for the purpose. A year later, it was officially opened to domestic air traffic.

During the 50's repair and alteration work was carried out to the runway, an apron was built to park aircraft, and measures were taken to give the airport a paved runway.

In 1965 the Lanzarote Island Council was assigned to build a 1850 by 45 metre hard runway. Provisional lighting was installed on the new runway, thereby enabling the airport to be opened to night traffic on request.

In 1969, construction work was carried out on a new passenger terminal building, an apron for aircraft, a connecting strip, the extension of the runway, a transmission centre, technical block and general planning. After the work, the airport remained classified as second category and, finally, on 3 March 1970, it was opened to civil national and international passenger air traffic.

First category airport

The constant increase in passenger traffic led to a further extension and improvement of the airport. Most important among the works were: the installation of a DME linked to the VOR, a VASIS at departure points 04/22, the entry into service of new runway lighting to replace the portable ones, a fire station, a new urban development, the extension of the aircraft parking area to 80,000 square metres, a rapid exit road and the extension of the passenger terminal to 4800 square metres. The new facilities meant the airport moved up to the category one, for the purposes of the airport laws.

In 1988, additional extension and alteration work was carried out to the airport to cover the existing demand. The terminal came to have a surface area of 14,000 square metres. In addition, to increase the operating capacity, a taxiway was built parallel to the runway and the parking area was extended to 149,000 square metres.

In 1999 the new passenger terminal was opened with a surface area of 42,000 square metres and sufficient capacity to meet the demands of six million passengers a year. The terminal is made up of two floors and has 42 check-in counters, including special luggage counters, eight baggage reclaim belts, twelve boarding gates and six skywalks for direct access to aeroplanes. The facilities are rounded off with new accesses, parking for vehicles and a control tower.
