Introduction of Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport
Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport (IATA code: ADZ, ICAO code: SKSP), originally known as Sesquicentenario Airport, is the main airport in the archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, one of the departments of Colombia. The airport is the sixth busiest airport in Colombia in terms of passengers, with 2,431,766 in 2019.
Serving San Andres, the airport currently has regular flights from eight different airlines with direct flights to and from over 10 different destinations. Most of these passengers to the airport come from the continental part of the country, due to poor international direct service to the island. Many international tourists have to fly to one of Colombia's or Panama's largest airports (Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Santa Marta, Cartagena, Barranquilla or Panama City) to be able to reach the islands.
