El Edén International Airport ( ) is an international airport located in the Colombian Department of Quindío, in the town of La Tebaida It mainly serves the capital, Armenia. It handles all domestic flights to major airports of the country and some international destinations.

Following Armenia's January 25, 1999 earthquake, the terminal had to be rebuilt after major seismic activity caused much of the building to collapse. During 2008/2009, the airport's runway was extended, the control tower's height was increased, and the terminal building was partly upgraded to include a new international gate and immigration area.

The airport is now capable of receiving aircraft such as: Boeing 737 and 727, Airbus 319 and 320, McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and Fokker 100, amongst others.

The new terminal has one food court, three Domestic Gates, one International Gate, two Parking Lots, and is located about 20 minutes from Armenia.

The first international flight, from Fort Lauderdale operated by Spirit Airlines, landed at Armenia International Airport on 13 November 2009. There are currently two weekly flights to Hollywood International Airport.
