Mataveri Airport
Mataveri International Airport or Isla de Pascua Airport (IATA: IPC, ICAO: SCIP) is located at Hanga Roa on Rapa Nui (Easter Island) (Isla de Pascua in Spanish). The most remote airport in the world, Mataveri International Airport is 3,759 kilometres (2,336 mi) from Santiago, Chile which has scheduled flights to it on the Chilean carrier LAN Airlines (formerly LanChile), and 2,603 kilometres (1,617 mi) from Mangareva in the Gambier Islands. The runway starts just inland from the island's southwest coast at Mataveri and nearly reaches the south coast, almost separating the mountain of Rano Kau from the rest of the island.В  The airport is the main point of entry for thousands of tourists who come to Easter Island to see its famous Moai and other archaeological sites. The airport contains a restaurant/bar, several souvenir shops, as well as a baggage claim area where most of the island's hotels and guesthouses have kiosks. The airport also has a transit lounge used by passengers who are continuing on to or from Papeete, Tahiti, which is also serviced by LAN Airlines.
