El Eden Airport
El Eden International Airport is an international airport located in the Colombian city of Armenia. It serves all the domestic flights to the major airports of the country and will serve some international destinations.
Following Armenia's January 25, 1999 earthquake, the terminal had to be rebuilt after major seismic activity caused much of building to collapse. During 2008/2009, the airport's runway was extended, the control tower raised to a new height, and the terminal building was partly upgraded to include a new international gate and immigration area.
The airport is now capable of receiving aircrafts such as: Boeing 737 and 727, Airbus 319 and 320, McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and Fokker 100, Fokker 50 amongst others.
The new terminal has one food court, 3 Domestic Gates, 1 International Gate, 2 Parking Lots, and it's located about 20 minutes from Armenia.
The first international flight landed at Armenia International Airport on 13 of November 2009 from Fort Lauderdale operated by Spirit Airlines. There are currently two weekly flights to Hollywood International Airport.
