Have you ever stopped to wonder at how an airport actually works? For most of us who moved here from abroad, Reina Sofia Airport was most likely the first Tenerife landmark we ever knew. We are, no doubt, frequent visitors to the airport as we pick up and drop off our family and friends who come to visit. And there are millions of people who visit each year and pass through the doors of that airport.

But how does it work, and how important is it to the island’s tourism industry that it functions efficiently? Now is your chance to find out with Focus, the association for international residents in Adeje, which in collaboration with CIT Sur is organising a guided visit of the airport on January 24th. The visit will take in check-in, boarding, security, and the falconry section: the airport has trained falcons who are vitally important in keeping the take-off and landing zones free of wayward birds.

The visit will cost €2.50 per person (price includes breakfast). We are opening up the visit to anyone, not just in Adeje, who would like to take part, but places are limited. If you would be interested can you please send an email to focusadeje@gmail.com and include the name and NIF/NIE/Passport number of all those who will be joining us – this is for security reasons so please make sure you include the details for everyone included in the visit.

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THOSE ATTENDING SHOULD BRING THEIR ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS WITH THEM ON THE DAY BECAUSE THEY WILL BE PASSING THROUGH SECURITY AND ENTERING RESTRICTED ZONES**
