Burgos Airport photoIntroduction

Burgos airport, which is located four kilometres north-east of the capital city on an open plain within the city limits, between towns of Gamonal and Villafría, joined Aena's airport network in October 2000.

This airport does not yet operate commercial aircraft traffic, and Aena is thererfore currently conducting a series of actions, including the construction of a new terminal, a new runway and an apron, which will make it possible to meet the future air traffic demand with high levels of safety and quality until at least 2015.

History

Burgos Airport photo The origins of Villafría airdrome date back to the 1920's, when a small aeronautical detachment was established in Gamonal, which served its purpose until aeronautical advances showed it to be too small. After this, the government of King Alfonso XII created the national Villafría Burgos airport by Royal Decree on 19th July 1927. On 3 January 1928, the Cabinet approved the construction of Burgos airport and, on the 15th of the same month, Villafría Town Hall agreed to cede the field called Gorreñal to the Superior Council of Military Aeronautics for the airport to be built there. As from 1936, the fields of Gamonal and Villafría joined their facilities, which went on to form a single aeronautical infrastructure.

On 8 August 1941, Burgos City Hall agreed to purchase a country estate of almost 300 thousand square metres that formed part of the old monte de Gamonal. On 10th November, the mayor offered this land to the Air Ministry.On 6 December, a decree granted the urgent installation of services and work to be carried out on the fields that it was trying to definitively link.

In fact, the Air Ministry was founded in Burgos after the civil war, when the Military Aeronautical Service forces created by King Alfonso XII in 1910 were modernized. These in turn were inherited from the Military Service Air Station, that belonged at the time to the Military Engineering Corp, established by the same monarch.

On 21 July 1949, the University Air Militia began its activities, after which 22 classes would form in its facilities, the offices of the latter being handed over in 1971. Villafría airdrome was opened to civil traffic in the autumn of that year. In 1973, what is now the Burgos Royal Flying Club was set up. Since then, and during the summer, the airport has hosted different teaching and training activities.

In August 1995, the Ministry of Defence signed an agreement with Burgos City Hall, via which it ceded the Villafría airdrome's facility exclusively for civil use. Thus, institutions in the city and province, as well as the most relevant companies present in the same geographical area created GABSA (Gestión del Aeropuerto de Burgos, S.A.), which is responsible for running the airport. In February 1999, the airport was officially opened, and in June that year, the Ministry of Public Works inaugurated the present hangars. Lastly, Burgos airport was declared to be of general interest by means of the Order of 20 October 2000, and the State manages it directly.
