Adalberto Mendes da Silva Airport (IATA: CAC, ICAO: SBCA) is the airport serving Cascavel, Brazil.

It is operated by CETTRANS, the semi-independent Transportation Authority of Cascavel, indirectly related to the Municipality of Cascavel,[5] and under the supervision of Aeroportos do Paraná (SEIL).

History[edit]

The airport was inaugurated on November 12, 1977.

Since 29 January 2013 the airport is operating with a 1.780m x 45m runway. The enlargement from its previous 1.615m x 30m to the present size was necessary due to the constant increase in the airport's traffic.

Ongoing projects at the airport are the installation of the Precision approach path indicator as well as a new improved fire station, which will raise the safety category to CAT 5.

A new passenger terminal with 2.500m² is under construction.

This developments will enable Cascavel Airport to operate aircraft such as Boeing 737, Airbus A320 family and Embraer E-Jet family.[6]
