Capitan Corbeta CA Curbelo International Airport (IATA: PDP, ICAO: SULS) is a naval aviation facility located in the Maldonado Department on the coast of the Laguna del Sauce.

Description

The airport mainly serves passengers traveling to neighbouring Punta del Este, although it generally serves cities surrounding the Maldonado area. It is commonly known as "Laguna del Sauce International Airport," but because of its closeness to Punta del Este, a popular beach resort city, it is sometimes also referred to as "Punta del Este International Airport" or "Punta del Este Airport" by passengers using it.

The airport typically sees a growth in passenger numbers during the southern hemisphere summer months. Most of the passengers that fly to the airport come from Buenos Aires. International services are available from Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay as well. In 2004, the airport's runway RW10 was repaired.

Capitan de Corbeta Carlos A. Curbelo International Airport can handle different types of jets, although usually, mid-size jets like the Boeing 737 and Airbus 320, and turbo-props like the ATR-42 are used in this airport, which complements a "department" airport also located around Punta del Este.

The main runway is 7000 ft (2133 m) long and is designed for aircraft up to the size and weight of a Boeing 737-700. There is also a shorter secondary runway. The airport is both civil and military. The Uruguayan Navy has its main (and only) base here for the naval aviation arm on the navy (Armada).

The modern building, designed by architect Carlos Ott, was inaugurated in 1997.

Gabriel Gurméndez Armand-Ugon , former Uruguayan government minister, has served as General Manager of the airport.
