Doña Ana County International Jetport at Santa Teresa

The Jetport is a full-service airport catering to southern Doña Ana County, the City of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua area.  The Jetport’s runway accommodates a wide variety of air traffic including business jets, single- and multi-engine aircraft, turboprops and helicopters.  Airport users include transient operators and the pilots based at the Jetport.  An international port of entry, the Jetport’s FAA Identifier is KDNA and is serviced by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

  • Service Area:  Doña Ana County, New Mexico; City of El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.
  • FAA Identifier:  KDNA
  • AWOS Frequency:  124.175 with access at 575-589-2643

The Jetport provides aircraft parking service, passenger facilities, inflight food and coffee, fuel service, pilot rest and flight planning facilities and transportation or car rental services. Special services include a fixed-base operator, aircraft maintenance, avionics maintenance, flight schools and skydiving.  Of special note is the War Eagles Air Museum, one of the finest aircraft museums in the country.


Owned and operated by Doña Ana County, the Jetport runway was recently strengthened and resurfaced. Its lighting system was upgraded to a pilot-controlled LED system.  The Automated Weather Observation System, Automated Weather Observing System operates on frequency 124.175 with phone access at 575-589-2643, for current weather observations.

Future plans include utilizing funds allocated by the U.S. Congress through the Federal Aviation Administration and New Mexico State Legislature for significant expansion of airport capabilities by adding a second runway capable of handling heavy cargo aircraft.  Additional plans include hangar space for T-hangars, corporate hangars and a separate aircraft maintenance area. 

The airport is a key component in the economic development plan for southern Doña Ana County.  Its proximity to the growing Bi-National Industrial Park, a hub for manufacturing goods for interstate and international trade along the U.S./Mexico border, makes it the third spoke of a rail, highway and air transportation system in development to support that trade.

The Jetport Mission Statement is to plan and deliver quality aviation services that assure a safe, pleasing airport experience to tenants and user; and to provide quality services to our customers.
