History

The first mention of Barcelona airport dates back to 1916, when its facilities were located at El Remolar, in the grounds of La Volatería farm, from which the facilities took their name. Between 1941 and 1946, the aerodrome underwent a series of reforms as a result of which it encroached on the nearby runway and facilities of the Catalonia Flying Club, built between 1939 and 1941.

In 1948, runway 07-25 was built –the one currently used as the primary runway– crossing over the runway that existed at the time. Between 1948 and 1952, a third runway was added, with a 16-34 orientation, perpendicular to 07-25, and taxiways and a passenger terminal were built.

In 1963, Barcelona airport reached its first million passengers, while in 1965 two new extensions were done on runway 07-25 and a parallel taxiway was added with exit taxiways. During this period, the control tower and a new apron were built, and the terminal was expanded.

Between 1965 and 1970, runways 07-25 and 02-20 took on their current configuration and the apron expansion was completed. In 1968, the new terminal was inaugurated, while major urbanisation works were done and several air navigation radio aids were installed.

On 3 August 1970, Pan American started operating the New York-Lisbon-Barcelona route, operating a Boeing 747. On 4 November, the Barcelona-Madrid air shuttle service began. In 1977, passenger traffic was now over 5 million.

Between 1970 and 1990, the most important action carried out was the construction of the air shuttle terminal and the cargo terminal, built in 1976 with an annexed mail service and an apron for cargo aircraft.

From 1990, the Barcelona airport faced the challenge of absorbing all of the traffic expected for 1992, the year the Olympic Games were held in Barcelona. In 1990, the new service building was inaugurated; in 1992, the passenger terminal extension began providing service (terminal B), along with the new terminals A and C, which included the first 24 positions with direct access to the aircraft through airbridges. That year there were over 10 million passengers.

In 1994, departure point 25, for instrument (ILS) approaches, became fully operational. From that moment on, the airport implemented a basic operations configuration based on landings on runway 25 and takeoffs on runway 20, which made it possible to increase progressively the capacity of the airfield from 38 operations per hour to 50.

In 1995, the new control tower was inaugurated, the first action carried out on the side of runway 07-25 closest to the sea. This was the first sign of the future airport development between the two parallel 07-25 runways. In 1996, the new multipurpose terminal began operations in the loading zone and was the first infrastructure designed to create a loading zone at the airport that would be more than just a group of terminals: a new air freight facility.

From 1995, Barcelona airport began to benefit clearly from the process of deregulating the scheduled air services, allowing the airport to enter a period of spectacular growth and consolidating it as one of the top 15 airports in Europe and one of the top 50 in the world.

In 1999, the Ministry of Economic Development approved the Master Plan for Barcelona airport, which marked the official start of Plan Barcelona.

Plan Barcelona is the third major transformation operation for Barcelona airport. The other two were carried out in 1968 and 1992. It includes the modernisation of the existing facilities, the construction of a third runway, a new terminal area, new road and railway accesses and the urbanisation of over 300 hectares as a service area for the industrial and commercial development of the airport.
