About the airport

Chaitén Airport (IATA code: WCH, ICAO code: SCTN) is a small domestic airport located in the town of Chaitén, in the Los Lagos Region of Chile. Situated in southern Chile, this airport serves as a gateway to the stunning natural beauty of the region.

Chaitén Airport offers limited services and facilities, catering primarily to domestic flights. It is served by a few airlines that connect Chaitén with other cities in Chile, such as Puerto Montt. The airport has a single runway and a small terminal building, providing basic amenities for travelers.

Travelers visiting Chaitén can explore the nearby Pumalín Park, known for its lush forests, waterfalls, and hiking trails. The town itself offers a glimpse into the aftermath of the 2008 volcanic eruption, with remnants of ash-covered buildings and a slowly recovering community.

It is important to note that due to its remote location, flight schedules to and from Chaitén Airport may be subject to change or cancellation, especially during adverse weather conditions. Therefore, it is advisable to check with the airline for the latest updates and plan accordingly.
