Los Cabos International Airport is the sixth most important airport in Mexico located at San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The airport serves Los Cabos area: San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. This airport has three terminals with 4 concourses. Terminal 1 serves almost all domestic and international operations while Terminal 3 works as a relief for the already saturated terminal, Alaska Airlines and Delta Air Lines already decided to transfer their operations to Terminal 3.
In 2007, the airport handled 2,901,200 passengers, representing an increase of 6.6% over 2006. It has become the most important airport in the state of Baja California Sur, as the country's number 8 in terms of passengers handled. Nevertheless, the infrastructure of the airport is already insufficient compared to the increasing demand, causing the lack of available positions for aircraft during peak-hours, as in many other airports in the country.
