Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport (IATA: ADZ, ICAO: SKSP) is the main airport in the archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina. It is able to receive large aircraft and to accommodate seasonal and charter flights from different parts of the Americas and Europe.
The airport is the sixth busiest airport in Colombia in terms of passengers, with 836,234 in 2006. Most of these passengers come from the continental part of the country, due to poor international direct service to the island. Many international tourists have to fly to one of Colombia's or Panama's largest airports (Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Cartagena, Barranquilla or Panama City) to be able to reach the islands.
On August 16, 2010, AIRES Flight 8250, crashed when on approach to Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport. Two of the 129 passengers and crew on board died.
On September 19, 2013, American Airlines flight 1204 from San Jose, Costa Rica made an emergency landing at the San Andres Airport after reporting smoke in the cockpit. All 179 passengers were said to be safe and continued to Miami, their final destination, on a second plane. The aircraft involved in the incident was a Boeing 757.
