Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport (IATA: SAL, ICAO: MSLP), commonly known as Comalapa International Airport or Cuscatlán International Airport, is an airport located about 50 km (31 mi) from San Salvador in El Salvador. It was built in the late 1970s to replace its predecessor, Ilopango International Airport, which is now used for regional, military and charter aviation.

Funding for this project was provided through the Government of Japan. Engineering and building came under the direction of Hazama Gumi Ltd. The electrical work for all lighting and communications was completed by Toshiba (then TOKYO SHIBAURA ELECTRIC). The Airport entered in operation on January 31, 1980 with its first flight being a TACA airliner bound for Guatemala City.

With 2,076,258 passengers in 2008, it is the busiest airport in El Salvador and third-busiest in Central America by passenger traffic.
