Airport Info

Los Cabos International Airport (IATA: SJD , ICAO: MMSD ) is the sixth-busiest airport in Mexico and one of the Top 30 in Latin America, located at San JosΓ© del Cabo in Los Cabos Municipality, Baja California Sur state, Mexico.

The airport serves San JosΓ© del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas, and the Los Cabos area.

History[edit]

From September 2011 until January 2012, the airport temporarily gained nonstop service to Asia with flights to Shanghai, China.

The airport handled 5,339,316 in 2019 and 3,064,200 passengers in 2020, 60% of them from international destinations.[1] It has become the most important airport in the state of Baja California Sur. Because of a dramatic increase in the number of holiday resorts and due to the region’s fast population growth, the infrastructure of the airport is now insufficient compared to the increasing demand, causing a lack of available positions for aircraft during peak-hours, as in many other airports in Mexico.

On September 15, 2014, Los Cabos International Airport was badly damaged by Hurricane Odile. Planes were knocked against structures due to the winds from Odile. Many people went to the airport, demanding flights out of Cabo San Lucas. The Mexican government began airlifting the first of thousands of stranded tourists, free of charge, to airports in Tijuana, Mazatlan, Guadalajara and Mexico City to catch connecting flights and, in the case of foreigners, receive consular assistance.[2]

In November 2019, British Carrier TUI Airways, commenced flights to and from London’s Gatwick Airport, thus being the first European carrier to fly in and out of the Los Cabos area. This flight is flown on a Boeing 787.

Architecture[edit]

The architect of Los Cabos International Airport’s 1997 renovation and expansion was Mexican architect and great-grandson of Queen Isabella II of Spain, Manuel De Santiago-de BorbΓ³n GonzΓ‘lez Bravo. He was a member of ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites), and his lifetime architectural legacy to Mexico adds to 11,000,000 square metres (120,000,000 sq ft) built nationwide, including famous buildings and national sites, as well as important national restorations like the Mexican Houses of Congress Palace (Palacio Legislativo de San LΓ‘zaro).
