Aeropuerto Benjamín Rivera Noriega | CULEBRA | CPX / TJCP

Aeropuerto Benjamín Rivera Noriega
Culebra, Puerto Rico


Este aeropuerto no certificado y de carácter público se encuentra ubicado cerca del pueblo de Dewey en la isla de Culebra, al este de Puerto Rico. Es operado y mantenido por la Autoridad de los Puertos de Puerto Rico. El mismo cubre un área de 15 acres (6 hectáreas) de terreno y se encuentra a una elevación de 49 pies (15 m) por sobre el nivel del mar. Cuenta con una pista (13/31) de asfalto de 2,500 x 50 pies de largo (792 m x 15 m).

Debido a la proximidad de una montaña y la poca longitud de su pista, este aeropuerto no es apto para vuelos comerciales de mayor tamaño. El uso del mismo es exclusivo de avionetas con capacidad para 10 pasajeros o menos. En el año 2009-10, el aeropuerto tuvo un movimiento de 72,488 pasajeros.

Fechas Importantes:

Primeramente operó como una instalación aérea construida por la Marina de Estados Unidos para uso militar, iniciando operaciones en 1957.

En 1965, el gobierno del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico inició un servicio de taxi aéreo entre San Juan y Culebra con la ayuda de un subsidio autorizado por la Legislatura.

En 1980, el aeropuerto militar y sus 80 acres de terreno fueron transferidos a la Autoridad de los Puertos de Puerto Rico. Desde 1971 la Autoridad administraba las operaciones de la aviación civil en Culebra y el 24 de octubre de 1976 inauguró la primera terminal de pasajeros en la isla.

En 1994 se inauguró una nueva terminal de pasajeros, designándose el aeropuerto con el nombre de Benjamín Rivera Noriega, en honor del piloto cialeño y líder comunitario que ganó la admiración de los culebrenses por su dedicación y servicio a los residentes de la Isla.

Cape Air solicita al gobierno federal subsidios para abrir la ruta SJU-CPX. O sea, desde el Aeropuerto Int'l LMM hasta Culebra. Actualmente CPX sólo es conectado a Isla Grande y Ceiba.

Lo que proponen es que la ruta opere desde mediados de octubre a mediados de mayo cada año. No habrían vuelos entre mediados de mayo y mediados de octubre. Según ellos, tienen que adquirir un avión que pueda operar en la pista de Culebra (2,600 pies) y otro aeropuerto en Rhode Island. Por eso los meses que no operarían en CPX lo harían en Rhode Island desde PVD (Providence).

Serían 4 vuelos diarios, y así darle conectividad al mundo a Culebra a través de SJU y más con los acuerdos que tiene Cape Air con JetBlue y United.

Culebra to get new air links, $2.3M airport upgrades

Written by Lorraine Blasor // February 24, 2014 //





The Benjamín Rivera Noriega Airport in Culebra (Credit: Wikipedia)

Airport improvements and additional air connections are in the offing for Puerto Rico’s sister island Culebra, whose beautiful and uncluttered beaches set amid an unspoiled environment make it a popular tourist destination.
Rolando Padua, general manager of the Aviation Bureau, said the Ports Authority is readying to invest $2.3 million to improve Benjamín Rivera Noriega Airport, which serves this small island located 20 miles off the northeast coast of Puerto Rico.
The investment is part of a capital improvement plan that will benefit Puerto Rico’s nine regional airports to the tune of $33.1 million, most of which is coming from the federal government, Padua said.
The outlay includes $25.8 million from the Federal Aviation Administration and $7.3 million from the Ports Authority.
Ports also is negotiating with at least two carriers to provide additional air links aimed at giving travelers a wider range of options to travel between mainland Puerto Rico and Culebra.
Those options were recently expanded with the startup of a new service by Cape Air, one of the largest independent regional airlines in the U.S. with apresence in the Caribbean since 1998. Starting on Feb. 15, the airline began operating four daily flights between San Juan and Culebra.
Padua declined to identify the carriers interested in serving Culebra but said one is an airline already in operation while the other is a new company being set up to provide just such a service.
Some 62,000 people fly in and out of Culebra each year, according to Padua.
In addition to Cape Air, Culebra is presently served by Air Link, Air Flamenco, and M&N Aviation, a private air charter that operates out of Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Isla Verde and provides 24-hour executive jet service from San Juan to any destination in the Western hemisphere.
