La Aurora International Airport
The La Aurora International Airport is the main airport that serves the city of Guatemala. Located only 6.4km from the city centre, it is the 4th busiest airport in the entire Central America in terms of the number of passengers handled every year.
This dual military and civil airport also serves other cities in the region such as Chichicastenango, which is a town 140 km away, famous for its K’iche Maya culture. The town attracts a lot of tourists for its historic culture and also for its popular market days during Thursdays and Fridays where locals sell handicrafts, produce, flowers and many products of the region.
The La Aurora International Airport was able to handle 2 million passengers in 2012 and is being operated by the Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil. Several airlines operate at the La Aurora airport and these are Aerolineas Sosa, Aeromexico Connect, American Airlines, Avianca, Copa Airlines, Copa Airlines Colombia, CM Airlines, Delta Airlines, Iberia, Interjet, Spirit Airlines, TAG and United Airlines. Destinations include both local and international routes such as Mexico, Miami, Dallas, Madrid, Houston, New York, LA, Panama and many other cities. The busiest routes are the Miami and Houston destinations.
The airport was built during the World War II when the US Air Force used the airfield. In 1949, it was turned over to the government where it was then used for civil and cargo purposes. An airfield had already existed though since 1911. In 2007, the airport terminal was partly demolished and reconstructed to make way for its current terminal.
Currently, as with most Central American airports, the La Aurora International Airport is undergoing massive reconstructions and modernization.
Since the La Aurora International Airport is the main airport that serves the country, its facilities are fully offered to provide its passengers with the utmost comfort and convenience when waiting and arriving after a flight.
There are two terminals as of today, with one located at the central and northern part of the airport complex. There are currently 15 gates for both domestic and international airlines.
Among the many facilities found inside the terminals are a bank, a post office, currency exchange facilities, several restaurants, coffee shops and Duty Free stores. There are also services for disabled passengers and children without accompanying adults.
There are 2 exclusive VIP Lounges at the airport. The airline Iberia offers their Los Anejos Lounge to their first class passengers while the Copa Club is a VIP Lounge provided for passengers of Copa Airlines and United Airlines.
There are currently no hotels inside the airport complex but the nearest one is less than 2 km away, which is the Crowne Plaza Guatemala –a business friendly hotel that’s highly ideal for those traveling on business purposes wanting to stay close to the airport.
You can get a taxi from the airport once you arrive or hire a car rental to get to and from the city centre of Guatemala. If you prefer public transportation there are buses and other modes of transportation found on the main road outside the airport.
