Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Manuel Gálvez) (IATA: RTB, ICAO: MHRO) is an international airport located on the island of Roatán, in the Caribbean Sea 50 kilometres (31 mi) off the northern coast of Honduras. Roatán is in the Bay Islands Department of Honduras.
The airport serves national and international air traffic of the island, the nearby cities and for the region. The airport is named for Juan Manuel Gálvez (1889-1972), the former president of the Republic of Honduras in 1949-1952. It was known previously as Roatán International Airport.
The airport is located in the western part of Roatán, near the main city of Coxen Hole.
In 2013, InterAirports completed an expansion and upgrade of the airport facilities. The expansion included a larger check-in area with coffee shop and cafe, larger waiting area with sitting area and cafe, expansion of the customs and security areas, and renovation of buildings and outdoor areas.
The next phase of the project will be an expansion of the airport's car parks and pick-up and drop-off locations, rental area, and shopping area. In January 2019, the runway extension work will begin, so the airport can pass 3 million passengers per year and accept intercontinental flights.
