The Teniente R. Marsh Airport is the northernmost airport in the continent of Antarctica. It mainly serves the nearby village, Villa Las Estrellas and the Base Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva. It is located on King George Island, Antártica, Antarctica.
The airport has 5 small buildings (hangar, control tower) and a small apron area for parking aircraft.
It is the only airport in Antarctica which has an IATA code. This is because it is served by various public flights, usually as part of a fly/cruise such as those run by Quark Expeditions. However there is no regular scheduled public service to the airport.
The airport uses the GMT -4:00 timezone.
