 VVI Viru Viru Airport Info & Guide

Viru Viru International AirportWhere is Viru Viru Airport?
VVI Viru Viru International Airport (IATA: VVI, ICAO: SLVR) is an aviation facility located in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.

The idea to build a new, modern airport in Santa Cruz was conceived in 1976, in view of the obsolesce of the old airport known as El Trompillo. Soon after, construction of the airport began. Upon its inauguration, VVI Viru Viru International Airport became the most important airport in Bolivia and its main gateway of international flights, despite Santa Cruz being only the second largest metropolitan area in Bolivia.

Because La Paz is located at a high altitude, it can be difficult to reach by car from other Bolivian cities, and many travelers choose to fly from Viru Viru instead. Viru Viru is now the largest international airport in Bolivia.

Viru Viru is able to handle the largest commercial jets. Most arriving flights are either domestic flights, flights from neighbouring South American countries, North American flights and some European flights.

On March 1, 1997 the Government of Bolivia entered into a 25 year contract with Airport Group International to operate the three largest airports in Bolivia – El Alto International Airport in La Paz, Jorge Wilstermann International Airport in Cochabamba and VVI Viru Viru International Airport. Servicios de Aeropuertos Bolivianos Sociedad Anonima (SABSA) was created to operate the concession. In 1999 Airport Group International was purchased by TBI plc and, in 2004, Spain's Abertis/AENA purchased TBI. The biggest aircraft that can land in the runway is the Boeing 747-400 from Aerosur.
