Loreto International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Loreto) (IATA: LTO, ICAO: MMLT) is an international airport located in Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Serving as the principal gateway for both domestic and international air travel to Loreto, a popular tourist destination situated on the Baja California Peninsula, the airport facilitates nonstop flights to western Mexico, the United States, and Canada. In addition, it supports various activities in general and executive aviation, as well as flight training. Operated by Aeropuertos y Servicios Auxiliares, Loreto Airport reported handling 131,933 passengers in 2022, with a subsequent increase to 169,228 passengers in 2023.[1]


Loreto Airport is situated at an elevation of 10 metres (33 ft) above mean sea level, with its grounds adjacent to the coast. The airport's infrastructure consists of one passenger terminal and a single runway designated as 16/34, measuring 2,200 metres (7,200 ft) in length. The apron is equipped with 3 aircraft stands designated for the disembarkation of narrow-body aircraft, with capabilities to handle aircraft the size of Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s. However, the airport primarily receives Embraer ERJ 145s, Bombardier CRJs, and Boeing 737s. Flights operate daily from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

The passenger terminal at Loreto Airport features a compact design with six gates and various passenger amenities, including snack bars, a wine/liquor shop, and a tourist spot offering handicrafts. The airport also caters to charter flights, as well as executive and general aviation operations.[2]
