Chimore Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Chimore, (IATA: CCAICAO: SLCH)) is an airport serving Chimoré, a town in the Cochabamba Department of Bolivia.

The airport is beside a bend in the Chimoré River. The runway length includes a 895 metres (2,936 ft) displaced threshold on Runway 35.

The airport was constructed at a cost of 40 million USD to the tax payer. In an area with hardly any population or industry. In the heart of the coca leaf territory, much of it owned by its current president. Its use is thinly disguised. It is a glaring neon sign declaring to all the countries lack of thought, strategic planning and rampant corruption.
