Managua Augusto César Sandino International Airport
The international airport of Managua, Nicaragua's capital, has changed names quite a few times. At the opening in 1968 it was called La Mercedes Airport. The Sandinistas changed it to Augusto César Sandino Airport in the eighties. In 2001 president Alemán was of the opinion that was too much credit and changed it to Managua International Airport. Six years later president Daniel Ortega reinstated the Sandinista name. And now we wait to see what the next president thinks of this name.
The terminal is divided into an east wing (international flights) and a west wing (domestic flights).
