History

The origins of the airport date back to the Civil War, when a new airdrome had to be built in Salamanca. Thus, on 15 October 1936, lieutenant colonel Lecea accompanied the soldier Luis Hernández to visit land located at the spot known as Mata-can, in the town of Encinas de Abajo. The land was considered to be ideal as an airfield.

In the summer of 1937, the airline Iberia was reactivated and fixed its base at Salamanca, at the request of General Kindelán. The first route was inaugurated on 16 August with the Tetuán-Vitoria service, using Junkers Ju-52 on loan from Lufthansa. On 1 May 1939, Iberia's equipment and facilities were transferred to Madrid-Barajas.

On 16 July 1940, the plenary of Salamanca City Hall ceded the land of Matacán to the Air Force, on the condition that it could also be used for civil air traffic. Six years later, in July 1946, the airport officially opened to domestic and international tourist traffic and technical stopovers for commercial traffic.

At the start of 1953, it was decided that a runway be built in the 04/22 direction with a taxiway.

On 24 May 1974, the National Aeronautics School (ENA) was set up, with a base in Salamanca. The aim of the centre was to train commercial pilots. In the seventies, the little commercial air traffic Salamanca received was dealt with in the military buildings.

In 1990, a new high-precision experimental landing system via MLS microwaves was incorporated.

Finally, in october 2005 the new terminal building begins to work with the arrivals and departures areas, the passengers services zona and all the airport's facilities.
