Orbitz.com can help you find the cheapest and most convenient flights from Medellin, the second-largest city in Columbia. Travelers to the area fly through JosÃ© MarÃa CÃ³rdova International Airport, also known as Medellin International Airport, located 45 minutes by car from the downtown Medellin area in the city of Rionegro. Major international airlines, including American, Copa and Spirit Airlines, fly in and out of this airport.
The easiest option for traveling to and from the airport is to take a taxi.
