Seymour Airport, Galápagos Islands

During World War II, the airport, then known as Seymour Island Airfield, was used by the United States Army Air Forces Sixth Air Force defending the South American coastline and the Panama Canal against Japanese submarines. The new Seymour Airport terminal, completed in 2012, consists of recycled steel taken from oil drilling operations in the Amazon, is spread over 6,000 square meters and required an investment of just over $24 million. The new complex uses clean, renewable technologies such as solar energy, wind farms, and seawater desalination, among other environmental innovations.
