El Alto International Airport:
El Alto International Airport is an international airport located in El Alto, near the city of La Paz, in the La Paz Department of Bolivia. It serves national and international air traffic. The facility served as a focus city for the former Lloyd Aereo Boliviano, Bolivia's national air carrier, and is a hub for Aerosur, currently the country's largest private airline.
El Alto has served as La Paz's airport since the first half of the 20th century, but was modernized in the late 1960s, when its runway was lengthened and a new passenger terminal with modern facilities was built. The new airport, called "John F. Kennedy" but still referred to as El Alto (as it has been known for several decades), was inaugurated in 1969. It has since been overtaken by Santa Cruz de la Sierra's more modern Viru Viru International Airport as Bolivia's most important.
