La Nubia Airport (IATA: MZL, ICAO: SKMZ) is located in Manizales, Colombia, 8 km southeast of the city's downtown. Due to its short runway and limited ramp space, the only aircraft which can use the airport are turbopropeller aircraft such as the Fokker 50, ATR 42 and the Dash 8 models. The main problem of La Nubia airport is weather. Sometimes shut down to fog, rain or winds, it is difficult for airlines to offer a reliable schedule for the passengers wishing to visit Manizales and Caldas, and combined with its limited hours of operation (just daylight), this fact has been an obstacle for the region's development.

Towards the end of 2011, a new international airport to be named Aeropuerto del Café will open in the municipality of Palestina which is 15 minutes away from the city. It is expected to start operations towards the fourth quarter of 2011. Aeropuerto del Café will have a 2400x45 meter runway, which combined with a lower altitude than the present facility, will allow it to serve larger aircraft. If traffic warrants it, the runway may be extended to 3500 meters in the future.
