The airport was only put into use in 1968. That doesn’t mean there weren’t flights to or from Almeria yet. There was an Aerodrome suitable for smaller, short-range aircraft. This was since 1932. The airport is focused on many domestic flights with Madrid as the main route. It also took years for the international route to be set up. There was only 1 flight a week to Paris with Valencia as a stopover. There was also a route to Barcelona. This city was then also used as a stopover for routes to the UK and Germany. Due to the increase in aircraft, the terminal was rearranged in 1995 with a new departures building. A new terminal dedicated to freight transport has also been opened and was commissioned in 2002.
