Abstract: The Canary Islands depend almost completely on air transport for the inter-island distances usually exceeding 80–100 miles. 1 Apart from the transport of heavy cargo and that of low unit value by sea transport, the rest of the traffic tends to choose this means. What is more, tourism is developing in the main island and is highly dependent on air transport. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the quality of regular inter-island air transport in the Canary Islands, and how this is incorporated into the Trans-Insular Transport Axis as a social and economic integrating factor. 2004 Elsevier Ltd.
