The airfield Stolp-West was opened in 1916 for the Imperial German airforce, after the Versailles Treaty the airfield was used as a civilian airport. It became a vital connection to East Prussia, which was cut off from mainland Germany by the Polish Corridor. In 1921 the "Luftverkehrsgesellschaft Pommern" was founded which operated from Stolp-West. The Deutsche Luft Hansa started to use the airport in 1926, a large hangar for six aircraft was built and the airfield served as an intermediate between Berlin, Stettin and the Free City of Danzig and Königsberg.
