The International Airport at Laguna del Sauce is the most important infrastructure and access project in the country to date.
With an investment of USD 40 million, the Airport has expanded its runways and now has one runway capable of operating with large aircraft, 2.133 metres long and 45 wide.
The terminal was designed by Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott.
It is a great building with two levels and one underground level.
On the first level are the 14 airline counters and offices, 24 shops, a snack bar, an 1000 m square duty free shop, two VIP lounges, a departure lounge, and customs, immigration and security offices.
On the second level is a huge restaurant and cafeteria, with a terrace which overlooks the platform with an incredible view of Laguna del Sauce and the hills beyond, and the airport administration offices.
Technically it can operate up to 5 Boeing 737-type aircraft on the platform, and has 50.000 square metres available for commercial aircraft.
The Control tower is 22 metres high.
There is parking space for 600 vehicles on the accesses.
