Altamirano, Guerrero has a paved airport named "Santa Barbara." The name comes from the sister town next to Altamirano. Most (if not all) people refer to it as simply Altamirano Airport, or "Aeropuerto Altamirano". The airport does not have any airline services, so the only ones using it are locals who own airplanes. Recently,[when?] a small military base was located at the airport.
