Brief history of Cayenne Felix Eboue Airport

The first airport in Cayenne, called “Gallion”, was built in 1943 by the US Army Air Force (USAF) in ten months as a base for bombers to reach Africa. Although it was quickly abandoned after the completion of the new airport, it is still located very close to it.

The new airport was originally named “Rochambeau” in honour of Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau, commander-in-chief of French troops in the American Revolutionary War. In 1949, it was acquired by France.

The name was controversial because the son of the airport’s namesake, Donatien-Marie-Joseph de Vimeur, viscount de Rochambeau, had violently suppressed the Haitian Revolution during the Saint-Domingue expedition. Christiane Taubira, then Member of the French National Assembly for Guyana, requested the name be changed in 1999. Numerous suggestions were made, including that of the seventeenth-century native chief Cépérou. It was finally renamed Félix Éboué Airport in 2012 and the change was formalised in January of that year. The airport’s code remained CAY. Félix Eboué Airport serves approximately 400,000 passengers per year.
