  • El Dorado Airport Guide

    Full Name: El Dorado Luis Carlos Galan Sarmiento International Airport
    Location: The airport is located eight miles (13km) west of the centre of Bogota.
    Time: Local time is GMT -5.

    Tel: +57 1 266 20 00.

    Transfer to the City:

    Travelling time is about 40 minutes into Bogota. Public buses serve the airport but are not recommended for visitors. Visitors are advised to arrange airport transfers with their hotels or hosts in advance of arrival, but if this is not possible taxis are available at the airport.

    Car rental:

    Car rental is possible at the airport. Driving in Colombia is risky and it is recommended that visitors hire a car with a driver, rather than opting to self-drive.


    There are two passenger terminals, with a branch of the Banco Popular situated in the main terminal which changes cash at good rates. ATMs are also available. On the first floor of the terminal are snack bars, restaurants and souvenir shops.


    Both short and long-term parking is available at the airport.
