Los Cabos International Airport (IATA: SJDICAO: MMSD) is the seventh busiest airport in Mexico, located at San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The airport serves Los Cabos area: San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. This airport has three terminals with 4 concourses. Terminal 1 serves both domestic and international operations for various air carriers while Terminal 3 services Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines and other seasonal international carriers. From September 2011 until January 2012, the airport temporarily gained nonstop service to Asia with flights to Shanghai, China.

In 2013, the airport handled 3,387,400 passengers, representing an 12.2% increase over 2012. It has become the most important airport in the state of Baja California Sur. Nevertheless, the infrastructure of the airport is already insufficient compared to the increasing demand, causing the lack of available positions for aircraft during peak-hours, as in many other airports in the country.
