If you can’t find the Gran Canaria airport in the autocompletion field for your tour operator, airline or flight search site of choice, try with Las Palmas or LPA.
On a side note that I don’t know whether if helps or makes things even more confusing:
- Gran Canaria: name of the island
- Las Palmas de Gran Canaria: name of the city
- Las Palmas: name of the province, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are the islands that belongs to tha province.
To make it a little more confusing, people usually refer to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, as just “Las Palmas” which has ended up to be the most common way to refer to the city as most times people don’t talk about the province.
Yes, we like to mess things up with names, that’s what you get when you are a fragmented piece of land 🙂
