Airports & Airlines

Most airline offices in Bogotá are in the north; some have more than one office. There are plenty of domestic flights to destinations all over the country.

Aeropuerto Internacional El Dorado

Bogotá's shiny airport, Aeropuerto Internacional El Dorado, which handles nearly all domestic and international flights, is located 13km northwest of the city center. It received a massive US$900-million face-lift in 2014, and an expansion in 2017 to accommodate an additional 12 million passengers annually.

Terminal T1, which replaced the old El Dorado terminal, serves all international flights, Avianca's main domestic routes (Barranquilla, Cali, Cartagena, Medellín and Pereira) and domestic routes from other airlines.

Terminal T2 (commonly referred to as Puente Aéreo), 1km west of T1 and reached by airport shuttle, serves the remainder of Avianca's domestic routes (Armenia, Barrancabermeja, Bucaramanga, Cúcuta, Florencia, Ibagué, Leticia, Manizales, Montería, Neiva, Pasto, Popayán, Riohacha, San Andrés, Santa Marta, Valledupar, Villavicencio and Yopal).

Transport Options

The most economical and efficient route from the airport is the TransMilenio. You'll need to buy a tarjeta tullave from the attendants in blue-and-yellow jackets outside Puerta 8 of the arrivals area next to where the buses depart.

If you're staying in Chapinero or points to the north, bus M86/K86 departs from outside Puerta 8 in the arrivals hall every seven minutes between around 4:30am and 10:45pm Monday to Friday, 6am to 10:45pm Saturday and 6am to 9:45pm Sunday, and heads towards Centro Internacional before turning north and carrying on up Carrera 7 to Calle 116.

If you're staying in La Candelaria, you'll need to change buses. From the airport, catch bus K86 to Portal El Dorado, and switch to TransMilenio 1 to Universidades, which is attached to Las Aguas Station via an underground tunnel. To the airport, catch 1 from Universidades to Plaza de la Democracia and switch to bus K86 to the airport.

Either way, plan on a solid hour's travel at the best of times, allowing longer during rush hour.

Taxi Imperial manages a fleet of white airport taxis – look for the folks in orange jackets – which are pricier (more comfortable! working seat belts!), but regular yellow taxis are fine as well. Estimated fares from the airport are La Candelaria COP$30,000 to COP$32,000, Chapinero COP$35,000 to COP$37,000 and Zona Rosa COP$35,000 to COP$38,000. The (usually lengthy) taxi line is right outside the main terminal. You pay a sobrecargo (surcharge) of COP$4900 for taxi trips to or from the airport and there's also sometimes a nominal add-on fee for luggage. Uber is also an (often cheaper) option.
