Find the cheapest flight to Honduras
The biggest and busiest airport in the country of Honduras is Ramon Villeda Morales International Airport (airport code SAP) which sits roughly 11km from San Pedro Sula. This is not the capital city, or even the biggest city, but it is an important international gateway to Honduras.
The Ramon Villeda Morales International Airport (also known as La Mesa International Airport) does not have an official website, but reports indicate that one of the reasons many travelers prefer flying into San Pedro Sula instead of the Honduran capital is that the ride into the airport is not as rough. Additionally, San Pedro Sula is close to many popular tourist attractions, making it easier to reach them directly from the airport.
For such a busy airport, there is not a huge list of airlines which connect with San Pedro Sula. Some of the airlines which serve Ramon Villeda Morales International Airport are Aeromexico, American Airlines, Atlantic Airlines de Honduras, Continental Airlines, Copa Airlines, Delta Air Lines, TACA, and Spirit Airlines. Some of the destinations served from San Pedro Sula are Mexico City, Miami, Houston, Newark, Belize City, Atlanta, New York, Roatan, Guatemala City, San Jose (Costa Rica), and Fort Lauderdale. Additionally, Iberia Airlines is apparently planning to add a direct flight to Ramon Villeda Morales International Airport from Madrid.
The Toncontin International Airport (airport code TGU) is 6km away from the downtown area of Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital city. It is the second-busiest airport in the country, and another main international gateway. The airfield is shared with the Honduran military. This airport also does not have an official website, but some of the airlines serving Tegucigalpa are American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Atlantic Airlines de Honduras and Aerolineas Sosa. The destinations served include Miami, Houston, San Pedro Sula, Roatan, Grand Cayman, Guatemala City, and Panama City.
More Information on Honduras
Honduras is one of the only countries in Central America that does not appear to be tourist-ready – while Costa Rica and Belize seem to have been redesigned for tourist comfort, Honduras is quite a bit more rough around the edges. And that is exactly how the people who like visiting Honduras want it to stay.
