Félix Eboué Airport (IATA: CAY, ICAO: SOCA) is French Guiana's main international airport. It is located near the commune of Matoury, 13 km (8 mi) southwest of French Guiana's capital city of Cayenne. It is managed by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of French Guyana (CCI Guyane). The airport has an elevation of 24 feet (7 m) above mean sea level. It has one paved runway. It is open to public air traffic and international air traffic. The Airport serves approximately 400,000 passengers per year.
This name was controversial because the airport's namesake's son, Donatien-Marie-Joseph de Vimeur, vicomte de Rochambeau, harshly repressed the Haitian Revolution during the Saint-Domingue expedition. It was finally renamed Félix Éboué Airport in 2012, the change becoming official in January of that year. The code for the airport remains CAY.
