El Hierro Airport is a small airport built in 1972 that serves the El Hierro Island in the Canaries. It is located just over a mile from the city of Valverde, capital of El Hierro. It operates between 08h30 AM and 18h00 PM and services around a hundred and eighty thousand passengers each year. As it is a small airport, only three local airlines fly to and from the airport. These airlines are Binter Canarias, Islas Airways and Top Fly mostly flying to and from North Tenerife, La Palma and Gran Canaria. The airport has basic facilities.
