Cayenne – Félix Eboué Airport (French: Aéroport de Cayenne – Félix Eboué) (IATA: CAY, ICAO: SOCA) is French Guiana's main international airport. It is located near the commune of Matoury, 13 km southwest of French Guiana's capital city of Cayenne. It is managed by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of French Guyana (CCI Guyane). The first airfield at Cayenne, called "Gallion," was built in 1943 in ten months by the U.S. Army Air Corps as a base allowing bombers to reach Africa. Though quickly abandoned upon the completion of the new airport, it can still be found very close to the aerodrome.
