On the land of that Gai suburb there was an infrastructure with a runway,
hangar and a terminal, from the military campaign from 1917. Here, on
14 July 1912, a big meeting took place when Aurel Vlaicu, a pioneer in
Romanian aviation, returned from Aspen Vienna and he was seen by his co
nationals as a hero of all the Romanians.
As a result of some negotiations that took place in order to build a
new airport, on 30 May 1935 the civil municipal aviation give the land
from the Ceala suburb where the constructions will start for building
the infrastructure. The construction work ended in 1936 and the official
inauguration of the new airport took place on 14 November 1937. From that
moment all the air traffic was conducted on this location and the landings
and taking off happened on a grass runway. In 1953 a concrete runway,
2000 meters long, was built, as the increased traffic demanded it. The
A and D taxiway were build in the same time as the runway. The lightning
system was re built in 1954 and was endowed with Elba lamps.
