History

Valladolid relied on three aerodromes before the town council started the procedures for an airport in Villanubla in 1921: the first, beside the Cavalry Academy, was opened in 1910; the second is the aerodrome of La Rubia, opened in 1911; and finally the San Isidro aerodrome, opened in 1913.

In 1936, the local inhabitants of Villanubla offered 700,000 metres squared for the construction of the airport. In 1938, Valladolid Airport was opened. The first commercial flight was carried out by a three-engined Junkers 52 of Iberia-Lufthansa which landed on the 28th March from Vitoria on route to Seville. The Salamanca-Valladolid-Burgos-Vitoria route opened this same year.

In 1939, the First Air Brigade was installed in Villanubla. The 16th Regiment was created in 1940 and the 33rd Regiment in 1941. In 1946, the airport was opened to civilian traffic and the Valladolid Flying Club was founded in 1949.

Between 1951 and 1952 the runway was improved with the installation of a hard surface and was equipped with the conditions needed for landing without visibility. Between 1955 and 1964, the airport was closed to civilian traffic. In 1970, the airline Aviaco started to operate scheduled flights.

Between 1972 and 1973, the works on the terminal building were started as well as those for a tread road, parking platform and urbanisation. In 1982, the passenger arrivals area was revamped and an ILS category I system was installed on runway 23. In 1990, the runway was extended. On the 19th June 1991, the airport was opened to international traffic. The new terminal area was opened in the year 2000.
