Airports in New Mexico

Albuquerque International Sunport Airport (ABQ)


The sunny Spanish Pueblo-style Albuquerque International Sunport is the primary airport for both Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and the largest in New Mexico. Located three miles (5km) southeast of the city, the airport processes nearly six million passengers each year through its terminal.

The airport is cheerful and offers plenty of diversions in terms of shops and other attractions like art galleries, although the dining options in the terminal are fairly limited for an airport of its size.

While Albuquerque International Sunport is an international airport, its busiest routes are domestic flights from Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Salt Lake City.


Albuquerque International Sunport is located approximately four miles (6km) southeast of central Albuquerque.
