New airport under construction in Ometepe for 2012

Jump to last reply

A new airport -- "airstrip" might be a better word -- is being built on the island of Ometepe in Lake Nicaragua, a couple of miles outside the town of Moyogalpa. If all goes according to plan, it is expected to open in "early" 2012. Nature Air has expressed interest in flying there from Managua and Liberia, Costa Rica, although nothing is definite yet. The runway should be able to handle small regional planes that carry about 40 passengers.
