La Aurora International Airport serves Guatemala City, Guatemala. It is located 6.4 km (4 mi) south of Guatemala City's center and 25 km (15.5 0) from Antigua. It is administered by the Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil.

La Aurora International Airport is going through massive modernization and expansion works. The airport is now able to accept a greater number of flights and larger aircraft. It provides high standard installations to the traveller. The old terminal has been renovated in accordance with its original design. It has been partly demolished and was expanded with a new glass-designed concourse in the north, able to accommodate up to twenty-two aircraft. The greater part of the project was completed by December 2008. The airport currently has two terminals: Central and North.

La Aurora International Airport is the fourth busiest airport in Central America in terms of passenger traffic, surpassed only by Tocumen International Airport in Panamá, Juan Santamaría International Airport in Costa Rica, and Comalapa International Airport in El Salvador. In June 2007 the airport was certified as Category I by the FAA.
