Simon Bolivar International Airport
The Simon Bolivar International Airport is the main airport servicing the northern Colombian city of Santa Marta, which is capital of the Magdalena department in Colombia. Nine miles from the city center, the Simon Bolivar International Airport also services other cities and areas within Santa Marta.
Santa Marta is one of the leading tourist destinations in the country, which is the 3rd most urban area of the Caribbean region. Because of the city and its surrounding areas being a major tourist destination, the airport has had both domestic and international flights. Domestic flights are scheduled by the local airlines while international flights are serviced by chartered flights of private jet companies.
The airport is operated by Aerocivil, which is a government agency ran by the Colombian Ministry of Transport that controls aviation activity in Colombia. The airport is one of six airports in the country operated by the agency.
There is only one runway at the airport, which is 1,700 meters long and 30 meters wide. The airlines that operate at the Simon Bolivar Airport are Avianca, EasyFly, Copa Airlines Colombia, LAN Colombia, and Viva Colombia. These airlines take passengers to and from major cities such as Medellin, Bogota, Cali, Bucaramanga, and others.
Simon Bolivar International Airport was established in 1950 and was named after Venezuelan military and political leader Simon Bolivar. He was the president of Gran Colombia until 1830, and was instrumental in Colombia’s struggle for freedom from the Spanish regime. Other airports that are part of the Gran Colombia also have airports named after Bolivar, such as the Simon Bolivar Airport in Venezuela, and an Ecuador airport formerly named as such.
Today, there are plans of expanding the airport to win more flights and destinations, especially passengers from the international market, who are constantly coming in droves to visit the many tourist destinations in the area.
The airport has an annual passenger capacity of around 600,000 and aircraft operations of 15,000.
Since the airport is quite small, there is not much to do and see. There is no available WiFi on site, and there are very few amenities. There are also no banks or ATM machines inside the airport. For such services, you would have to go into the city. There are, however, a few places to eat inside the airport, for those who need to have a meal before or after a flight.
This public runway located on the coast does not have hotels inside for passengers to stay in. But there are hotels and resorts in close proximity like the GHL Comfort Hotel, which is only half a kilometer away and while the nearest resort is about 3 kilometers north from the airport.
There are taxis and car rental services available at the airport, which can be booked ahead online. Public transportation, including buses, is a short walk away.
Our prices are also consistently lower than those of our competitors. So what are you waiting for? Do some good for Mother Nature, do some good for your wallet, and book one of our Santa Marta Airport Transfers today!
