Brief history of Viru Viru Airport

The airport was opened in 1983, replacing the former El Trompillo Airport. After its inauguration, Viru Viru became the main gateway for international flights. Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano used Viru Viru as a hub before ceasing operations in 2008. On March 1, 1997, the Bolivian government signed a 25-year contract with Airport Group International to operate the three largest airports in Bolivia.

Servicios de Aeropuertos Bolivianos Sociedad Anonima (SABSA) was created to operate El Alto International Airport in La Paz, Jorge Wilstermann International Airport in Cochabamba and the Viru Viru International Airport Concession. In 1999, Airport Group International was acquired by TBI plc. In 2004, Spain’s Abertis/AENA acquired TBI. SABSA was replaced by the newly created state agency Navegación Aérea y Aeropuertos Bolivianos (NAABOL) in March 2022. This state-owned agency now manages airports in Bolivia.
