Chagual Airport is an private Peruvian airfield owned by Compania Minera Poderosa and is located near the town Chagual in the district of Pataz. Chagual is the only airfield in the district offering passenger traffic, air cargo and operations.

The Chagual airfield, 3.980 feet high in the middle of the Andes, is a small airstrip with a length of 1.200 meter encased in a winding valley which only allows a very difficult and complicated visual approach. The approach to the runway 14 is made with a substantial bank angle on final, since due to the topography is impossible to make an approach centered on the axis of runway.
