Viru Viru International Airport Facts

Viru Viru International Airport is an aviation facility in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. A new modern airport for Santa Cruz was conceived in 1976, to replace the obsolete El Trompillo Airport. Upon its inauguration, Viru Viru became Bolivia's main gateway for international flights, despite Santa Cruz being Bolivia's second largest metropolitan area.

La Paz is at high altitude and not ideally situated. Many travelers choose to fly from Viru Viru instead. Viru Viru is the largest international airport in Bolivia. Viru Viru is able to handle the largest commercial jets and handles domestic, regional, and international flights from North America and Europe. It is the hub for Bolivia's biggest airline Boliviana de Aviación. Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano used Viru Viru as a hub before ceasing operations in 2008.
