Over 4 million passengers go through the airport each year, making it a major access point for many tourists and locals who travel to and from Puerto Montt and the neighboring cities and holiday tourist destinations.
Today, there are two major local airlines operating in El Tepual Airport, and these are LAN and Sky Airline.

They fly to other major airports in Chile and in neighboring countries.
The construction of the El Tepual runway began in April of 1960. A devastating 9.7 magnitude earthquake occurred in the area a month after, which made the runway the site of a great airlift during that time. It was only in 1963 though, that the airport was officially inaugurated. During the 90’s, scheduled flights were made to and from Brazil and Argentina.
Renovations and expansions were made in the early 90’s with a new airport terminal opening in 1995. Further expansions and improvements were also made in 2010, opening the airport’s new terminal.
