José Joaquín de Olmedo International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional José Joaquín de Olmedo; IATA: GYE, ICAO: SEGU) is an airport serving Guayaquil, the capital of the Guayas Province and the most populous city in Ecuador. It is the second busiest airport in Ecuador.
The airport was named after José Joaquín de Olmedo, a notable Ecuadorian poet, first mayor of Guayaquil, and former president of Ecuador. It was changed from Simón Bolívar International Airport, which is currently the name of the airports in Caracas, Venezuela, and Santa Marta, Colombia.
The airport is on the Avenida de las Américas, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of Guayaquil’s centre. The runway length of 2,790 metres (9,150 ft) includes a 240 metres (790 ft) displaced threshold on Runway 21 and a 100 metres (330 ft) displaced threshold on Runway 03. The runway can accommodate Boeing 747 and Airbus A340-600 aircraft. The airport is in the broad delta of the Guayas River, with level terrain in all quadrants.
The Guayaquil VOR-DME (Ident: GYV) is 1.39 nautical miles (2.57 km) off the approach threshold of Runway 21, and the Guayaquil non-directional beacon (Ident: R) is 1.1 nautical miles (2.0 km) off the same runway.
In July 2014 the airport domestic area was enlarged; now the airport is capable of handling up to 7.5 million passengers per year. An exit tax is levied on all international tickets, however it is no longer required to pay at the window when exiting the country. This policy may change.
