Overview

Welcome to the most comprehensive and complete source of information about the Varadero Airport on the web!

The middle-sized Juan Gualberto Gómez Airport is an international airport serving the popular beach resort destination of Varadero and the province of Matanzas in Cuba.

It’s the the second largest and busiest airport in Cuba after the José Marti International Aiport in Havana (the country’s capital). It's named after journalist and black rights activist Juan Gualberto Gómez (1854-1933). The airport handles both international and domestic flights and approximately 25% of Cuba’s air traffic.

The Varadero airport has only one terminal building where you can find a few snack bars, cafeteria, shops, duty free shops, kiosks, public and VIP lounges in the Departures Area. The terminal building is air-conditioned and non-smoking except in one designated area. For more info click Airport Facilities in the right menu.

There are three jet bridges, but air stairs are also used for the remaining aircraft parking spaces on the apron by the terminal. Most of the ground handling equipement is imported from North America.
