Find our cheapest flights to Gran Canaria by booking a hand baggage only fare, and get ready for a break with sun, sea and sand. Book a generous 23kg baggage fare, which allows you to pack for a longer holiday. Or with Iberia, you can choose hand baggage only, or check a bag for only €15 per person (€30 for each additional bag). You can also buy tasty food from British food favourite M&S, on board all flights from/to London Heathrow and London Gatwick with British Airways. For your convenience we will only accept payment by credit/debit cards on board, and Executive Club Members can pay with Avios via the British Airways app.
After touching down in Gran Canaria, take a pre-arranged bus service or taxi to your final destination. However, the best way to explore the island is by car - and from the airport terminal it's easy to hire a car and explore at your own pace. We recommend traveling to the north west part of the island, as you will find some beautiful scenery and isolated beaches. Or head south to the beautiful resorts that dot the coastline, including exclusive Meloneres.
Summer is mid-May to October and is hot and sunny most days, with weather remaining mild in winter (from November to April).
