Chinandega Airport (Spanish: Pista Aérea Germán Pomares Ordoñez) (ICAO: MNCH) is an airfield located in Chinandega, Nicaragua.[2]

History[edit]

In the early 1980s, the airstrip was used primarily by light aircraft for aerial fumigation. The Chinandega Airport, also known as the El Picacho Airport, was renovated in 2010 by the Nicaraguan Civil Aeronautics Authority (INAC).[3][4]
