Airport Santa Cruz de La Palma (SPC)Deze pagina in Nederlands
The airport of La Palma is in the district of Mazo. Its official name is 'Santa Cruz de La Palma' with airport code SPC. When booking flights please ensure that you, and the travel agent, double check the airport code. It is a fairly common mistake that people book to Palma de Mallorca or Las Palmas.

The airport was originally further up the mountainside, just below the hospital, and was moved to its current location on the coast. In 2006-2010 the airport buildings and facilities are being substantially expanded. More car parks, a larger terminal building and a large technocal complex are being built.

Concidence? Gerard took this photograph while waiting for their plane home, his wife Helen is at the first table. He unknowingly also snapped friends of ours. That's the two people (in red) at the third table. Mieke spent part of the year in The Netherlands and the rest of the time on La Palma. Hans is the Dutch owner of Bungalows Sonvida in Todoque

From the seats on the right you only see the sea before touchdown. On the left you only see the mountain getting closer!
