Juana Azurduy de Padilla International Airport is an airport that serves Sucre, Bolivia, the nation's constitutional capital city.

The only runway at Juana Azurduy de Padilla is 9400 feet in length, and is at an altitude of 9528 feet. Because of this high altitude, many people who arrive at Sucre via rapid air travel get altitude sickness. The altitude also causes the airport to be excessively cloudy at times, making approach difficult.

As with many in Latin America, Juana Azurduy de Padilla International Airport is not open 24 hours a day. It is only open from sunrise to sunset. However, unlike many Latin American airports, Juana Azurduy de Padilla has a paved runway.

Though Sucre is Bolivia's constitutional capital city, Juana Azurduy de Padilla International Airport is not the largest airport in the country. The largest airport is Viru Viru in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

The airport is named for Juana Azurduy de Padilla, who fought for independence against Spain.
