Rosario - Islas Malvinas International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Rosario - Islas Malvinas) (IATA: ROS, ICAO: SAAR) is located 13 km (8.1 mi) west-northwest from the center of Rosario, a city in the Santa Fe Province of Argentina. The airport covers an area of 550 ha (1,400 acres) and is operated by the Province of Santa Fe.

The airport serves the Greater Rosario area and is the main hub for Sol Líneas Aéreas and is also served by Aerolíneas Argentinas, Gol Transportes Aéreos and LAN Argentina. There are domestic flights within Argentina from Rosario to Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Mar del Plata (via Buenos Aires), Mendoza (vía Còrdoba), Santa Fé and Villa Gesell (via Buenos Aires) cities as well as international services to Santiago de Chile, Porto Alegre, Brazil, and Punta del Este, Uruguay (direct flight in summer and via Buenos Aires in fall, winter and spring).

Since June 2008 the Uruguayan airline PLUNA will fly from Rosario to Montevideo (Uruguay).

The airport is at an altitude of 26 m (85 ft)and the runway is 3,000 × 45 m (9,843 × 148 ft).

A new terminal was constructed between 2003 and 2004, making Rosario effectively an international airport. Because of being so close to Buenos Aires (340 km (210 mi)), direct flights between them are not common.

In the first years of the 21st century the Rosario Airport has progressively lost air traffic volume, even after it was updated and expanded in 2003–2004. In 2005 there were only 1,807 flights, about 75% less than in 2000. Among the reasons cited are low ticket prices compared to the increased cost of fuel, the lack of a national air transportation policy, and the existence of a cheaper and fast alternative (the Rosario-Buenos Aires Highway).
