La Gomera Airport GCGM

La Gomera Airport (IATA: GMZ, ICAO: GCGM) is an airport located near the town of Playa Santiago on the island of La Gomera in the Canary Islands, 34 km (21 mi) southwest[1] by road from the island's capital city, San Sebastián de la Gomera.

Although the runway was completed in 1994, the terminal did not open until 1999. With a 1,500 m × 30 m (4,921 ft × 98 ft) runway the airport can only take turbo-prop inter-island flights, not jets from mainland Europe, and only operates during daylight. There are two return flights per day, to Tenerife North.[2]

Although 34 km (21 mi) from the island capital, the airport was located here to avoid disturbing the Garajonay National Park and avoid the cloudier and foggier climate to the North of the island, whilst the volcanic terrain gives few suitable sites anywhere on La Gomera, although even this site required extensive embankments at both ends of the runway.
