An Iberia Airbus A321-200, registration EC-JLI performing flight IB-3937 from Tenerife North,CI to Madrid,SP (Spain), had been cleared to line up runway 30 and was cleared for takeoff, commencing takeoff almost immediately after line up.

An Air Europa Boeing 737-800, registration EC-MJU performing flight UX-9118 from Madrid,SP to Tenerife North,CI (Spain), was on final approach to Tenerife's runway 30 descending through about 2700 feet MSL (about 700 feet AGL on 3 degrees glideslope) about 2.1nm before the runway when the crew initiated a go around.

In turn, due to the go around, the A321 rejected takeoff just at about 80 KIAS (86 knots over ground) about 530 meters/1750 feet down the runway, slowed safely and returned to the apron.

The B738 positioned for another approach and landed safely about 18 minutes after the go around.

The A321 was able to depart about 55 minutes after the rejected takeoff.

Iberia Passengers reported the captain announced they rejected takeoff due to another aircraft on final approach going around. Had they continued takeoff a loss of separation might have resulted.
