Fuerteventura Airport (IATA: FUE, ICAO: GCFV), also known as El Matorral Airport, is an airport serving the Spanish island of Fuerteventura. It is situated in El Matorral site, 5 km (3.1 mi) southwest of the capital city Puerto del Rosario.

The airport was opened officially on 14 September 1969. The first plane to touch down on the new runway was an Iberia Fokker F27, which flew the route Las Palmas-Fuerteventura-Lanzarote.

In 1992, the airport received more than 1,600,000 passengers, which made it necessary to carry out extensive refurbishment of the terminal and aircraft parking areas.

In 1994, construction started on a new terminal building, an aircraft apron, a taxiway parallel to the runway, a power plant and a new access road. The works were completed with the extension of the car park and a detour on the Puerto de Rosario-Matorral, road adding some two kilometres, of which 1.5 are double lane. With the new facilities it was possible to attend around five million passengers a year and manage around 3,100 passengers per hour during rush-hour periods.

Fab Airport .... Not much walking or waiting in queues ! No Free Wifi... Food is expensive but tasty... Nice outside areas to allow last minute rays! Smoking is also allowed in the departures area in the outside areas...
- Tim Amy

very slow check-in and security check. After that, there are many options to eat or buy something but there are only a few seats to sit down while waiting for Boarding.Wifi 30 minutes free- average.
- Mark Kekel

Great airport, nice and small. Check in poor and slow and always something is broken. Security are really abrupt. Ryanair queues ridiculous! Ryanair - do t rush to gate for priority boarding because everyone joins same queue! Shops are fine and the fact you can sit out in the sun is great. Food is expensive.
- Lorraine Conway Crut

Landed at almost at the end of business day so no queues for us and the baggage was claimed quickly. The only thing bad was that the WIFI was not functional
