Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport (IATA: ADZ, ICAO: SKSP) is the main airport in the archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, which is able to receive large aircraft, to accommodate a number of seasonal and charter flights to and from different parts of the Americas and Europe.

Description[edit]

The airport is the 6th busiest airport in Colombia in terms of passengers, with 836,234 in 2006. Most of these passengers 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, Cartagena, Barranquilla or Panama City) to be able to reach the islands.
