Tegucigalpa Toncontin International Airport

City: Tegucigalpa
Country/Territory: Honduras


Toncontín Interantional Airports serves the capital of Honduras, Tegucigalpa, and is the second busiest airport in the country, after San Pedro Sula Airport. The airport has a reputation for having one of the most dangerous approachces in the world, due to the mountainous terrain and short length of its runway, which is among the shortest in the world among international airports at 2021m. The runway length limits the airport to handling aircraft no larger than Boeing 757s. The airport is served domestically and regionally by TACA and Copa, as well as by Honduran carriers, and internationally to the United States by United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. 

Palmerola Airport, on the site of Soto Cano air base in Comayagua, was planned as a replacement for Toncontín as Tegucigalpa's main international airport. However, Tegucigalpa Toncontin International Airport said it would not suspend operations once the construction of Palmerola Airport is completed, noting it will continue to operate domestic services.
