I just passed this airport and it is definitely closed. The runway is overgrown, the tarmac cracked, the airport is unfenced and cows and sheep are desperately trying to clear the runway from shrubs and grass.
I just landend on this quite new airport (Dec. 16, 2007). Only LAN and the less known Sky Airline operate flights to CPO (official three-letter-code). The airport is small and efficient. No airbridges.
The old airport - known as Copiapo/Chamonte was about 30 miles to the East, closer to Copiapo. If you search for CPO in Google Earth, you can still see the old airport.
