Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetia (IATA: CCS, ICAO: SVMI) (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Maiquetia Simón Bolívar) is located in Maiquetía, about 13 miles (21 kilometers) from downtown Caracas, Venezuela.

Simply called 'Maiquetia' by the local population, it is the top international air passenger gateway to Venezuela among the twelve international airports in the country. From 1960 to 1997 it was the main hub for VIASA, Venezuela's former flag carrier till the air carrier went bankrupt.

It handles flights to many important cities in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East.

Since 2000 the airport has been undergoing major changes in order to meet international standards and to improve passenger traffic, security, immigration areas and customs areas. Security measures have become top priority since the 9/11 events, and now departure areas and arrival areas are completely split into the lower and upper levels of the airport. As part of an expansion plan new international gates are currently in construction and a section of the parking area has been cleared to build an airport hotel.

Maiquetia airport has two terminals: Domestic (D) and international (I).
