Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (IATA code: SCL, ICAO code: SCEL), also known as Santiago International Airport and Nuevo Pudahuel Airport, is Chile's largest aviation facility and busiest international airport. It is located in Pudahuel, 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) north-west of downtown Santiago. Its location in Chile's most populated area, as well as in the central part of the country makes it an ideal main hub and maintenance center for most local airlines such as LATAM and Sky Airline.
The airport offers domestic flights and international services to destinations in Europe, Oceania, Africa (cargo only), Asia and Americas. It has two terminals: Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Terminal 1 was originally built for both domestic and international operations but now is used for domestic flights only. Terminal 2 is newly designed for international flights, covering more than 200,000 square meters. It increases the total airport capacity from 16 to 30 million passengers per year. The core of the new terminal consists of a central processor (T2M) where passengers undertake arrivals and departures procedures as well as four piers where the departures lounges are located.
