Formerly known as Rancho-Boyeros Airport, José Marti International Airport is located 11 miles (18km) southwest of Havana, and is Cuba's main airport. Serving as a hub for Cubana de Aviación, Aerogaviota and Aero Caribbean Airlines, the facility serves several million passengers each year.
The airport's four passenger terminals each have their own purpose: Terminal One serves domestic flights, Terminal Two handles Special Authority flights to and from the US, Terminal Three is for international flights, and Terminal Four primarily serves Aero Caribbean and Aerotaxi. Facilities are basic but good, with a modest variety of shops and restaurants with 24-hour service.
The airport is situated 9 miles (15km) from Havana.
