Also known as El Aybal Airport, it is the main hub of the Argentine Andes, served by Aerolíneas Argentinas, LATAM Argentina and Andes Líneas Aéreas. It has a 2,300 square metres (25,000 sq ft) passenger terminal and parking spaces for 525 cars. The Salto VOR-DME (Ident: SAL) and non-directional beacon (Ident: L) are located on the field.[5][6]

In 2012 it handled 690,712 passengers, making it the most used airport in Northern Argentina.[7] The new terminal was built in 2000 by Aeropuertos Argentina 2000.

In late 2013, Boliviana de Aviacion planned to return to Salta Airport, restarting its route to Santa Cruz de la Sierra-Viru Viru. This is an important connection to international destinations, such as São Paulo-Guarulhos, Madrid-Barajas and Lima.
