Bogota Airport Guide to El Dorado International Bogota Airport (BOG)

Bogota Airport Terminals

Bogota El Dorado Airport is the largest and the main international airport in Colombia, being the international and domestic gateway of the country.

It consists of two terminals: Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. 

Bogota Airport first passenger terminal began service in 1959 as a replacement of the interim terminal. In 1973, due to the accomplishment of the three million passengers milestone, it became necessary the construction of a second runway to lessen the incoming congestion.

It wasn’t until 1981 that Puente Aéreo, Terminal 2, was constructed and worked as Avianca’s hub until 2014 when Avianca moved all its operations to Terminal 1. 

In the last years, both terminals underwent several refurbishment and redesign works which granted them the capacity to handle 55 million passengers per year. 

Transfer between terminals

You can easily transfer between terminals by a free satellite shuttle bus.

Service hours: From 5:00 am to 11:00 pm, every 20 minutes.
