Ilopango Airport was once the International airport until Monseñor Arnulfo Romero, in Comalapa, was made operational. Ilopango handles both military and civilian flights (private airplanes). Following the Earthquakes in 2001, Ilopango became the principal while damage assessments were carried out on the runways at the International airport in Comalapa.   A new passenger’s terminal was inaugurated in 2016.  The waiting room has a capacity for 60 maximum passengers. The new terminal also has capacity to attend 1,100 passengers a month. Flights are available by a Guatemalan company to Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize (via Guatemala).
