What is the highest airport in the world?
Flying in Latin America is to feel the pleasure of knowing one of the most enigmatic and beautiful corners of our planet. Los Andes, which run more than 3 million kilometers of the continent, has the second highest mountain in the world Aconcagua and the highest volcanoes in the world. It is no wonder that the cities located in the heart of this mountain range are possessors of 7 of the highest airports in the world.
First is El Alto International Airport, which serves the city of La Paz in Bolivia, with 4,061 meters above sea level. Followed by Manco Inca Cápac (3,826 meters), Andahuaylas (3,444 meters) and Alejandro Velasco Astete 3,310 meters) all in Peru. Bolivia appears again with Juana Azurduy de Padilla airport at 2,901 meters above sea level, next is Quito’s Mariscal Sucre airport at 2,813 meters and finally Comandante Germán Arias Graziani terminal in Peru at 2,773 meters above sea level.
The other 3 airports are in China, including the first and second place in the list exceeding 4,300 and 4,400 meters high each. Travelers who come to these destinations are advised to walk slowly and sit immediately if they feel dizzy or lightheaded due to lack of oxygen.
