Humacao Airport (IATA: HUCFAA LID: X63) is a public use airport owned by the Puerto Rico Ports Authority and located one nautical mile (1.85 km) southeast of the central business district of Humacao, a city in Puerto Rico.[1]

Because of the new José Aponte de la Torre Airport in Ceiba which opened in November 2008, Humacao Airport and Fajardo Airport were scheduled to shut down operations.[citation needed] However, as of July 2009, Humacao Airport was still listed as an active airport by the Federal Aviation Administration.[1]

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Humacao Airport covers an area of 14 acres (5.7 ha) at an elevation of 33 ft (10 m) above mean sea level. It has one asphalt paved runway designated 10/28 which measures 2,450 ft × 60 ft (747 m × 18 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending March 16, 1998, the airport had 5,349 aircraft operations, an average of 14 per day: 76% general aviation, 22% air taxi and 2% military. At that time there were 35 aircraft based at this airport: 66% ultralight, 26% single-engine and 6% multi-engine and 3% helicopter.[1]
