Official Spotting Locations

Maiquetía Airport does not have any official viewing areas.


Other Spotting Locations

The restaurant at the domestic terminal provides a goos view of the ramp. However, the balcony is covered by a glass which generally is dirty, so the chances of getting good pictures from there is reduced.

Inside the domestic terminal the gate 5 at the departure hall provides a good view, but it is a heavily secured area, so be discreet and do not stay there of an extended period of time.

In the External Ramp after Gate 25 is a zone that you can take some good Photos. But you will need a good lens Camera because the runway is distant.

Locations to Avoid

The northern area of the airport (The area surrounding the VOR) shall be avoided as it is a very unsafe area and the risks of robbery are very high. Also, the scrapyard of runway 28 shall be also avoided due to the same reasons.
