Alfonso Bonilla Aragón International Airport
Alfonso Bonilla Aragón is located in a long, narrow valley that runs from north to south, and is surrounded by mountains up to 14,000 feet high. This makes landing at the airport notoriously difficult, and has led to many accidents. In 1996, American Airlines Flight 965 crashed into these mountains during descent.
Alfonso Bonilla Aragón International Airport can serve aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 747.
