Medellin Airport Information

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 José María Córdova 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.

Airport Transportation Options

The easiest option for traveling to and from the airport is to take a taxi.

It costs 3.50 USD in local currency, but it can take an hour or longer to get to the heart of Medellin with frequent stops. Also, the minibus offers limited space for luggage, so it may not be ideal for anyone traveling with more than a small bag. One of the most convenient options is to rent a car. Orbitz.com can help you secure a discount rental car from a local agency.

Weather Information for Medellin

The weather ranges between 60 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, with an average temperature of 71 degrees. Due to the city's high altitude, the air is typically cool with little humidity. One of the most popular times of the year to visit Medellin is during the first days of August for the local Festival of Flowers.
