Quibdo Airport

The Quibdo Airport, or more commonly known as the El Carano Airport, is an airport serving the city of Quibdo in Choco, Colombia. It is located two kilometers from the city center, and is one of the minor domestic airports in the country. The airport is mainly used for tourism purposes, with passenger traffic largely attributed and linked to mining and eco-tourism potentials in the area. Several travelers too, go to the area in search of medical services, which in turn boost the revenue of the airport.

However, in the recent years since its inception, the Special Administrative Unit of Civil Aeronautics has decided to remodel and improve the facilities of the airport to match the times and attract more passenger numbers. The move was catalyzed by several issues that hamper air service delivery, including cracks in the runway, growing vegetation on those tracks, old design and model of the terminal, and several others.


The airport has a single terminal that handles all commercial passenger services and several other airport-related services. In the next years to come, the said terminal would be remodeled into a 2,000-square-metre air-conditioned two story module, which will house the main passenger terminal, cargo terminal, fire station service, parking arrangements, and others. It will also have improved safety and security features, improved communication facilities, and others.
