General Enrique Mosconi International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional General Enrigue Mosconi) (IATA: CRD, ICAO: SAVC) is an international airport in the Chubut Province, Argentina serving Comodoro Rivadavia. The airfield is located 8 kilometres (5 mi) north of the city, covers an area of 810 hectares (2,000 acres; 3.1 sq mi), and has a 4,000 square metres (43,000 sq ft) terminal. There are hills west of the runway. The Comodora Rivadavia VOR-DME (Ident: CRV) is located 4.0 nautical miles (7 km) east of the airport. The airport is the main hub of Líneas Aéreas del Estado (LADE). It was built in 1929, and was officially inaugurated with an Aeroposta Argentina flight between Bahía Blanca and Comodoro Rivadavia vía San Antonio Oeste and Trelew on 1 November 1929. The new terminal was constructed in 1952.
On November 22, 2017, the longest non-stop flight ever made by the Royal Air Force (RAF) of the United Kingdom landed at the airport. The flight was part of the RAF's support in the search for the ARA San Juan (S-42) submarine which had disappeared days before. This flight also marked the first time an RAF airplane had landed at the airport since the Falklands War era.
