Albuquerque Sunport (ABQ) Airport
Albuquerque Sunport ABQ Airport Overview
The city of Albuquerque is a high-desert city, situated at the foot of the Sandia Mountains. It is one of the oldest cities in America and has been home to people of the Rio Grande Valley for many centuries, rich in history and culture. Albuquerque, home to the Isotopes, Balloon Museum, BioPark, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and Old Town to name a few, is recognized by a variety of media as 'one of the best places to live, work and do business'.
ABQ Airport is only four miles from downtown Albuquerque - New Mexico’s largest city, accessible via I-25/I-85 (Pan American Fwy) and from I-40 (Coronado Fwy ) via I-25 south. Route 350 is now in service.
Having three runways and an average of about 4.8 million passengers annually*, Sunport Airport is served by major airlines - Southwest being the dominant one - offering nonstops to U.S. cities, as well as by Aero Mexico with flights south of the border.
* While in 2007 passenger counts were over 6.5M, in the following 5 years there was a decline of 25 percent, and currently there are no international flights. However, recent Business Journals point to an upswing in Albuquerque's economy and some airlines added new flights.
Sunport Airport has one passenger terminal with Concourses A, B C.
