Albuquerque International Airport Information

Guest who are visiting the Albuquerque International Sunport for the first time are usually surprised and delighted to find that this is not a traditional, routine airport structure. The unique architecture sets it apart, as does its focus on the arts. Amazingly, this airport has an art collection that includes 113 permanent pieces. Not only are these pieces a part of the art program here, but the airport also puts new art on display at various times by way of its exhibits program. Perhaps the most awe-inspiring item at the Sunport is the Curtiss Pusher Design Biplane that hangs in the Great Hall. This original 1914 Biplane is one of only a few of its era that still remain intact and in original condition.

In a wonderful gesture to give local talent an opportunity to shine, the Sunport surprises travelers with showcases of music. Groups and individuals with musical talent ranging from polka to classical are given the chance to entertain here. More than 85 concerts are freely provided in the Great Hall of the Terminal Building yearly. Visitors passing through the Land of Enchantment at Sunport can leave with a musical memory not usually found in other airport settings.

ABQ is the designation given for the Albuquerque International Sunport. This airport services flights to 27 cities nonstop and has 22 gates. There are four runways, and the elevation is 5,352 feet. The airport's parking structure can hold 3,700 motor vehicles, has four levels, and it contains five photovoltaic solar arrays that directly provide power to Sunport's terminal building. Throughout the terminal, guests have access to free wireless Internet service. Additionally, mail and express delivery services are available for travelers needing to send packages or letters.

As a provision for guests and weary travelers who need some space and a place to have some quiet time, the Sunport has designed and offers a new Meditation Room. Sometimes the hustle and bustle begins to grate on one's nerves, and the Albuquerque Aviation Department decided to do something about it. The room provides upholstered bancos. Occasionally the room is used for religious services, but there are no formal worship services regularly scheduled.

Individuals with disabilities will find elevators in the parking structure and the terminal, Braille signs, wheelchairs and TDD devices for the hearing impaired. Tourist and airport information is available on the baggage claim level at the Information Booth.
