Palonegro International Airport

Palonegro International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Palonegro) (IATA: BGA, ICAO: SKBG) is located in the town of Lebrija, Santander, about 30 km west of Bucaramanga, Colombia. The airport provides the Bucaramanga Metropolitan Area and surrounding towns with access to international and domestic flights. The airport was built over the mountains surrounding the Bucaramanga plateau. A mountain road connects the city with the airport, which is located at about 1,200 m above sea level (The city of Bucaramanga is located at 950 m above sea level). The airport bears the name of the nearby area, "Palonegro". This was the place of a famous battle of the Thousand Days War, which happened in the early 20th century. The airport receives flights from major cities in Colombia as well as international flights from Panama City. The main terminal is 25 minutes from the city in the fast lane of the highway west to Giron. It is currently positioned as the eighth largest airport in Colombia, for this reason the expansion and construction of a new National boarding area is being developed.
