Ingeniero Aeronáutico Ambrosio L.V. Taravella International Airport ( ) , more commonly known as Pajas Blancas, is located 9 km (5.6 mi) north-northwest away from the center of Córdoba, the capital city of the Córdoba Province. The airport covers an area of 1020 ha (633.8 mi) and is operated by Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 S.A.

It is that nation's third largest airport, after Ministro Pistarini International Airport and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, both located in Buenos Aires.

The airport had been a jetport for a long time, but it had been lacking the size to receive larger numbers of passengers until Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, a private company that operates several airports in Argentina, decided to give internal Argentine airports more money so that they could expand and lure more airlines. Up until that moment, the Taravella airport, which was named after an architect, only had one story and one terminal.

Building of a second and third floor began in 2000, designed by prominent local architect Mario Roberto Álvarez; by 2002 it was finished and Aerolíneas Argentinas decided to make the Taravella airport a hub for domestic flights.

The airport is equipped with the necessary lights to have night air traffic, but pilots flying there, especially pilots of light aircraft, are recommended to look out for birds, as there is quite a substantial number of them inhabiting the areas nearby.
