The airport in Sucre

The airport in Sucre (SRE) is located outside the city. It is not equipped for international flights and only has a basic terminal building and runway. The runway can only be used in the daytime as there are no landing lights. I travelled there from Santa Cruz in a Boeing 727 from Lloyd Aero Boliviano (LAB).

The picture shows the airport looking back from the car park. Our luggage was just being loaded onto the buses at this particular moment.

LAB are currently not flying to Sucre because of operating difficulties.

I have heard stories about cars, in particular taxis, being driven to the airport and parked either side of the runway to allow emergency landing of aeroplanes after dark.

If Sucre is to become the seat of Government then surely the airport will need to be upgraded to international standards.
