A Little History

Benjamín Rivera Noriega was opened in 1957 by the United States Marine Corps as a military airport.  The Puerto Rican government began flying civilians from San Juan to Culebra with a Legislative compensation.  The first passenger terminal was inaugurated in October 1976 after the Navy protests. The airport’s 80 acres were transferred to the Puerto Rico Ports Authority in 1980.

The airport of Culebra was originally built as a military airport by the United States Marine Corps, opening in 1957. In 1965, the government of Puerto Rico started flying civilians from San Juan, the capital city of Puerto Rico, to the island with a Legislative compensation.

Since then, a new terminal for passengers was created in 1994 and the name of the airport was changed to Benjamin Rivera Noriega in honor of a pilot recognized in the community for his services to the people of Culebra.
