OverviewEdit

 
Check-in area

Cordoba is currently[when?] Argentina's third-largest airport, after Ministro Pistarini International Airport and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, both of which are located in Buenos Aires.

The airport had been a jetport for a long time,[clarification needed] but it had been lacking the size to receive larger numbers of passengers until Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, a private company that operates several airports 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.

The construction of a second and third floor began in 2000, designed by prominent local architect Mario Roberto Álvarez; by 2002, it was finished and Aerolíneas Argentinas decided to make the Taravella airport a hub for domestic flights.

The airport is equipped with the necessary lights to have night air traffic, but pilots flying there, especially pilots of light aircraft, are recommended to look out for birds, as there is quite a substantial number of them[clarification needed] inhabiting the areas nearby.

Today, Córdoba Airport primarily serves only domestic and regional destinations across deep South America. There are two intercontinental flights: Air Europa to Madrid and American Airlines to Miami (from 2019). Most intercontinental passengers route through Sao Paulo or Buenos Aires.
