Ingeniero Ambrosio L.V. Taravella International Airport
The Ingeniero Ambrosio L.V. Taravella International Airport is an airport located in Cordoba, Argentina. It is that nation's third largest airport, after Ezeiza International Airport and Jorge Newberry Airport , both in Buenos Aires. The airport's IATA code is COR.
The airport had been a jetport for a long time, but it had been lacking the size to receive larger amounts of passengers until Aeropuertos Argentinos , the government agency that oversees air transportation in Argentina, decided to give internal Argentine airports more money so that they could expand and lure more airlines. Up until that moment, the Taravella airport, which was named after an architect, only had one story and one terminal.
Building of a second and third floor began in 2000; by 2002 it was finished and Aerolíneas Argentinas decided to make the Taravella airport a hub for domestic flights. Southern Winds , another major international airline, made the airport a hub for international flights as well.
The airport has two runways: runway 18/36 is 3,200 feet long and 45 feet wide, while runway 04/22 is 2,800 feet long and 45 feet wide.
The airport is equipped with the necessary lights to have night air traffic, but pilots flying there, specially pilots of light aircraft, are recommended to look out for birds, as there is quite a substantial amount of birds inhabitating the areas nearby.
