The Silvio Pettirossi International Airport is located on the outskirts of Asunción, in the borough of Luque, about 13km from the city centre.
Despite its international status, the airport facilities are rather basic, although important services such as money exchange, tourist information, car rental, a post office and some small gift and duty free shops are available.
The third alternative, by bus (Line 30 connects the airport with the city centre), is not recommended because the buses are old, hot, noisy, dirty and pretty dangerous.
