About the Abel Santamaria Airport Santa Clara

Santa Clara Abel-Santamaria-Airport

The Abel Santamaria airport (Aeropuerto Abel Santamaria) is a small-sized international airport located near the city of Santa Clara, the capital city of the Villa Clara province in Cuba.

It serves mainly the popular resort destination of Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Ensenachos and Cayo Las Brujas and also the city of Santa Clara in the central part of Cuba. It is named in honor of Abel Santamaria Cuadrado (1927-1953) who was an important player in the Cuban Revolutionary movement.

Its a small airport with limited facilities. In 2008 the airport was completely remodeled and expanded to meet the growing demand for the aforementioned islands, located in Cuba’s Jardines del Rey Archipelago allowing the airport to receive three times more passengers than previously. The airport is also base to Cuban Mig-23BN fighters from the 14th Tactical Regiment of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, which includes helipads for military helicopters.

The Santa Clara airport has just one terminal which handles international and domestic flights. The main terminal building is air-conditioned and non-smoking except in the habitual designated areas. Because there are no jet bridges, mobile staircases are used for embarking and disembarking passengers onto the tarmac in Santa Clara Airport.
