“Very simple no frills flight”
Review of Canaryfly


Reviewed 3 March 2018

We flew Canaryfly both ways from and back to Fuerteventura. Everything was simple, easy and straightforward. The flight price was excellent being non-residents and we were able to change our flight back by one day quite easily and without too much additional cost. The views from the plane were good. We saw Tiede on Tenerife on the way there.

As a resident of El Hierro I wished to try the newcomer airline as comparison with the
incumbent. The experiences were very similar and the differences insufficient for me
to avoid either in favour of the other. Factors will be cost and convenient timing.

Canary Fly does not offer newspapers or chocolate bars like the other airline but
it has cheaper seats. The headline offer is "Fly for €5" but to this must be added
fees and there is a limited number of seats at this price. In total I paid less than
€11 - about a euro less than the ferry price - as no €5 seats were available. The
other airline has 10% reduction for over-60s but CanaryFly seems not to do so.

This airline operates only one flight a day on the El Hierro route - a short period
before the evening flight of the other operator. A useful feature is that there is
an agreement between the two airlines that passengers may transfer between
them if they arrive at the departure airport early and space is available.

When I travelled (30-Jan-18) there were just sixteen passengers on a 78-seat
aircraft. I admit to not understanding airline economics!! By omitting newspapers
and chocolate bars (water IS provided) perhaps they scrape into profit.

The island council has arranged for all flights to be met by public transport at
the airport on El Hierro. However no extra journey has been provided for the
new flights by CanaryFly. Thus passengers have to wait until after the flight
by the incumbent airline has arrived before gaining an onward connection.

Cheap, fast and convenient flight. It takes not more than 40 minutes and the journey seems like seating in a bus.
