Marambio Airport (ICAO: SAWB) is an airport serving Marambio Base, an Argentinian research station on Seymour Island in the Antarctic Peninsula. Marambio is the main air-support node for most local and foreign stations in Argentine Antarctica, providing year-round medical evacuation, search and rescue, personnel, cargo, and mail transfer.
Facilities [ edit ]
The airport control tower is 12 m (39 ft) high. The runway is lined with strobe lights.
The parking apron provides large cargo aircraft like the Hercules C-130 with access to fuel and concurrent services.
There is a hangar for the Argentine Air Force de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter that routinely operates from the base along with two Bell 212s that are deployed during the summer campaigns to support scientific activities and link to other Argentine bases.
