El Embrujo Airport (IATA: PVAICAO: SKPV) is an airport serving Providencia Island, Colombia.

The runway is on the eastern edge of the island, with high terrain to the west. Runway 17 has a 150 metres (490 ft) displaced threshold.

History[edit]

Prior to 1984 and the arrival of Governor of the Islands Simon Gonzales, the airport had limited traffic from San Andrés due its short runway.

Under Governor Gonzales, architect Ricardo Gonzalez Farah lengthened the runway by 300 metres (980 ft) and rebuilt the passenger terminal in typical Caribbean architecture. After the upgrades, SAM Colombia began flights from San Andrés. Later, the airport was again refurbished, with improved air terminal facilities.
