It is the home base for the 1st Air Brigade
(Spanish: Primera Brigada Aérea) of the Argentine Air Force, which is mainly a transportation unit. It is located 18 km (11 mi) west of Buenos Aires, near the El Palomar station of the San Martín railway line. The airport resides at an elevation of 59 feet (18 m) above mean sea level and it has one runway designated 16/34 which measures 6,923 by 164 feet (2,110 m × 50 m).
In February 2017, it was announced that Flybondi, a new low-cost carrier, would use the airport in 2018 as a base to fly to multiple destinations within Argentina. Another low cost airline, JetSmart, has since arrived at the airport, and began flying international routes.
