Fuerteventura Airport – Canary Islands Airport’s do not rank in SkyScanners lastest list of rudest, weirdest and strangest airport names in the worl

The old capital name for Fuerteventura which was formally known as Puerto de Cabras ( Port of the Goats ) now known as Puerto del Rosario because it was felt the previous name did not reflect the right image for an islands capital that is the business centre for Real Estate, banks, Lawyers and Notary’s. We think that Fuerteventura’s Puerto de Cabras could have managed to obtain the listing in the airport or zoo category for Goat Airport
