Port of La Luz (in the capital), the Puerto de Las Nieves (in the town of Agaete) and Gran Canaria Airport are the major infraestructures linking Gran Canaria with the world.

The airport is situated at 18 kilometers from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the island’s capital, and at 25 kilometers from the tourist centers. Currently, it is the fourth airport of Spain and the main airport in the Canary Islands. Gran Canaria Airport houses two terminals, one for flights from the European Union and Spain (International Terminal – A) and one for non-EU and island flights (BC Terminal). Most of the flights come from the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Italy and France.

The island also has a good highway system. The GC-1 motorway connects Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with the tourist area of the south through southeastern coast, the GC-2 connects the capital with Agaete and the Ring of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria runs through the metropolitan area.
