El Dorado Airport is the most important airport in Colombia. It is the only one in the country that has two parallel runways. In its most recent remodeling, a new control tower and a new national and international passenger terminal were built. In this way, the useful area of the building was greatly expanded, as well as the platform area and contact positions. It is Avianca's main hub. AeroFarallones operates from this airport to more than 100 destinations around the world.
The idea of building an airport in Rionegro was thought about since the 70s, when the Olaya Herrera Airport in Medellín became increasingly saturated. Furthermore, the dangerous topography of the Aburrá Valley was a risk factor for air operations in a crowded airspace. Despite being an airport with a considerable elevation, it has established itself as the second most important airport in Colombia. AeroFarallones operates from this airport to more than 50 destinations in Colombia and the world.
Alfonso Bonilla Aragón Airport dates back to the 70s when the VI Pan American Games were held in Cali. This airport replaced the famous "Calipuerto" located between Cali and Candelaria. The new airport was built on the old Palmaseca farm, located between Cali and Palmira. It currently has flights to most cities in Colombia, the Pacific coast, the United States, Chile and Spain, mainly. AeroFarallones operates to more than 30 destinations from Palmaseca, most of these, under the modality of regional operation.
Like many other airports in Colombia, Palonegro Airport was conceived at the beginning of the second half of the 20th century. It was proposed as the solution to remove the airport from the city. The old Gómez Niño Airport represented a risk factor for safety, both operational and for the city itself. Several accidents had occurred previously in the vicinity of the city. Currently, Palonegro Airport is the most important in eastern Colombia and operates flights to the main cities of the country, as well as to Panama and the United States. AeroFarallones operates many of its regional flights from this airport.
