Challenging Airports - Pasto, Colombia (SKPS)

Our previous visit to Colombia during our Challenging Airports series was in 2019 when we dropped into La Nubia Airport near Manizeles, an airfield tucked up against the western slopes of the high mountains of the Colombian Andes. In this issue, we take a look at an airport at the southern end of the same Cordillera Central mountain range, Antonio Nariño Airport serving the high-altitude city of Pasto, Colombia. With a population of over a third of a million people, the region uses Antonio Nariño as a gateway to airports in Cali and Bogota, allowing connections to more distant international locations. Move slowly as we explore the 5,951ft elevation airport lest you become short of breath.
