Hub Airport

Maputo International Airport is the airport hub of CR Aviation. It is 3kms out of the centre of Maputo, the capital city of Mozambique. It mostly services other African nations with airlines such as Kaya Airlines, but performs some intercontinental flights via Turkish AirlinesTAP Portugal and Qatar. Maputo International is the largest airport in Mozambique and the largest airport that CR Aviation flies to and from.

The airport is split into two terminals — one for domestic flights and one for international flights. As CR Aviation currently only flies domestic routes, the airline solely uses the Domestic Terminal to operate services to and from.
