The Airport has one terminal which is divided into two sections; International and Domestic. International flights leave to Canada, Europe, South America and the Caribbean. Primary domestic routes are to Caracas, Maturín and Ciudad Bolivar. The only current regular services to/from Europe were with Condor from Frankfurt, however these flights operated via other Caribbean Islands such as Barbados, Grenada and Tobago. By May 2011, Condor had suspended their Frankfurt service due to low demand. TuiFly Nordic provides seasonal service to the Nordic countries.
