Passenger guide - Tegucigalpa airport (TGU) 

 

Toncontín International Airport, opened in 1934, is the busiest in the country. Due to recent accidents, its geographic position and short runway, it will only operate with small-size planes once Palmerola Airport is concluded. It operates with domestic flights and international destinations in the United States, Mexico and Central America.
