The José María Córdoba Airport (JMC Airport) is located about 50 kilometers (32 miles) from the city of Medellín. The route that takes you there, although paved with excellent, modern roads, is not the easiest to travel since there are lots and lots of curves, and much of the journey is on very steep mountain roads.
Because of this, the 50-kilometer journey to JMC Airport can take around an hour. There is also lots of traffic on the road, which can make the journey even longer. Most visitors to Medellin have to take this journey, as all international flights, and most domestic flights arrive at the JMC Airport.
How to get to or from JMC Airport
At the moment there is a wide variety of options to get to Medellin JMC Airport. For example, behind the Hotel Nutibara, located in the downtown area of the city, buses depart between every 30 to 45 minutes. If you are arriving to the airport from abroad, you will be able to identify these buses when leaving the JMC Airport because there is always a long line of people waiting for their seat. It is a good option, but it has its limitations and for many people, plus it is not very comfortable because the busses are very small and often quite old.
Meanwhile, next to the gas station near the San Diego Shopping Center, you will find white taxis that can take you to JMC Airport. Although you will also have to wait your turn and you will need to synchronize your schedule with the service, so you don’t miss your flight. Many people don’t use this option as they find that the taxis are somewhat crowded to travel as the owners try to fill the cars with as many people as possible. In both cases the service goes from the city to the JMC Airport and vice versa.
