Hermosillo International Airport (IATA: HMO, ICAO: MMHO), also known by its ceremonial name, General Ignacio L. Pesqueira International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional General Ignacio L. Pesqueira), is an international airport located in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The airport handles several domestic flights as well as flights to the U.S. cities of Tucson and Phoenix. It handles around 50 daily commercial flights to destinations within Mexico and the United States.
The facility is composed of one main runway (5/23), one alternate runway which is currently closed (11/29), taxiways, hangars, and a commercial terminal which has capacity for 9 or more aircraft.
The airport normally serves as the primary alternate airport for flights headed to Tijuana International Airport, therefore, it is not unusual to see planes otherwise headed to Tijuana being diverted to Hermosillo due to unfavorable weather at Tijuana or other technical problems. The airport's runways and taxiways were recently widened so as to handle heavy aircraft that may divert to Hermosillo. Aeroméxico has had to divert its Boeing 777 to Hermosillo on several occasions.
The airport is also a military base, denominated BAM-18, handling Mexican Air Force's flights.
The airport is named after Ignacio Pesqueira, a general who helped the Mexican army resist the French during the 19th century invasion.
It handled 1,349,300 passengers in 2015, and 1,561,500 passengers in 2016.
