    It will be more advantageous for the country if that huge ammount of green papers were invested in regional air terminals in northen and southern cities to divert the passenger traffic out of “Santiasco”, the worst city in Chile, to make a real develop of regions.....

    “Missing vision”, that's what comes to my mind when I think of this airport. No doubt it's one of the most modern on the continent (and also visited), but it was build almost completely new in the 90ies and it already reached it's limits now? Whenever I fly, entrance and departure is a pain, it has some bad bottlenecks.

    Yes, but is due is the only one international entrance airport, except P. Arenas that have the link with Falklands and some charters with exchange personnel for the Antarctic bases.....It would be at least three or four international airports along the country and stop the crazyness that is increasing the size of that airport where is to difficult the landing process in a too much poluted city....The best for the country is divert the tourist and businessmen as close as possible to their final destination without be forced to pass through Santiasco.
