Jorge Wilstermann International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Wilstermann, IATA: CBB, ICAO: SLCB) is a high elevation international airport serving Cochabamba, the capital of the Cochabamba Department of Bolivia. The facility is named after Jorge Wilstermann, an early Bolivian commercial aviator.


On 1 March 1997 the Government of Bolivia entered into a 25-year contract with Airport Group International to operate the three largest airports in Bolivia – El Alto International Airport in La Paz, Jorge Wilstermann Airport and Viru Viru International Airport in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Servicios de Aeropuertos Bolivianos Sociedad Anonima (SABSA) was created to operate the concession. In 1999 Airport Group International was purchased by TBI plc and, in 2004, Spain's Abertis/AENA purchased TBI and operated until 2013 when the Government ordered the nationalization of SABSA, the company Airport Group International created. SABSA Nacionalizada operates the airport since 2013.
