History of Lanzarote Airport
There was a need in the 1930’s to fly to the Canary Islands from Seville. That motivated them to build an airport on Lanzarote. With an approval in 1940 as part of a defense plan. Construction started a few km west of the town of Arrecife. In 1946 the airport opened and the first Lanzarote airport arrivals took place.
The following years, various activities were carried out, including the construction of a parking platform for aircraft. In 1965 there will also be a new runway with the conveniences whereby aircraft can also land or take off in the dark. A few years later, there will also be a new terminal, an extension of the runway and a few technological improvements.
In the 1980’s and 1990’s, more aircraft parking spaces were built, a taxiway was built, and again a new passenger terminal with more capacity to meet the demand from the many flights.
