Benedito Lacerda Airport (IATA: MEAICAO: SBME) is the airport serving Macaé, Brazil. The airport is named after Benedicto Lacerda (1903-1958), a musician born in Macaé.

It is operated by Infraero.

History[edit]

The airport was established in the 1960s as an airfield for general aviation and a Flying club. In the 1980s the runway was paved and an apron and a terminal with 941 m² were constructed, enabling Macaé Airport to fully support the operations related to the Campos basin. In fact, most of its movement (98%) is related to helicopter flights to/from offshore oil platforms of the Campos basin. Its apron has 6 positions for fixed-wing aircraft and 38 positions for rotorcrafts.
