The Antonio Maceo Airport is a medium-size international airport located 7 km (4 miles) SSW from Santiago de Cuba, the second largest city in the country and the capital of the south-eastern province of Santiago de Cuba.
It serves mainly the city of Santiago de Cuba and surrounding areas. Every week (especially during the high season from December to April) a few international flights bring tourists going to the all-inclusive resorts located along the coast (from Chivirico to Baconao).
The airport is named in memory of Lt. General José Antonio de la Caridad Maceo y Grajales (1845-1896) who was second-in-command of the Cuban Army of Independence.
The Santiago de Cuba airport is basically a turbo-prop center but jet aircrafts also fly to this airport. It handles both domestic flights (~ 80%) and international flights (~20%). It has 1 Passenger Terminal, 1 Cargo Terminal and 12 Aircraft Stands. There’s no jet bridge, so mobile staircases are used for embarking and disembarking passengers onto the tarmac
The terminal building is air-conditioned and non-smoking except in one designated area. For more information about this airport, facilities, formalities, arrivals/departures, and photos, please click the links in the right menu.
