Its traffic is mostly scheduled and domestic, with the two main destinations being Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona to which Badajoz runs scheduled flights.
In 2005, the airport handled 72,982 passengers and 4,450 aircraft movements.
At the start of 1951, the runway began to be levelled, and in the same year, the control tower was finished. The runway was concluded at the start of 1953, and in December the Army Jet School was set up.
The air base improved its facilities, and on 12 September 1958 it opened to domestic air traffic. Talavera's aeronautical rights were established in June 1954, and then subsequently modified in 1968.
The first scheduled flight by the airline Iberia took place on 14 July 1976, with the Madrid-Badajoz route, and the air base's facilities were used to serve passengers.
The problems which arose due to the joint use of the airport resulted in the obligatory construction of a separate apron and terminal building on the opposite side of the runway. The work began in 1981 and ended in 1983, although the Terminal was not used until 1990, when two daily flights were organised with Madrid and two weekly ones with Barcelona.
At present, the airport runs scheduled flights to Madrid
and Barcelona all year round and, in the summer, to Palma de Mallorca.
