History of Stuttgart Airport

Stuttgart Airport (STR) was built in 1936 in the neighbouring town of Echterdingen when the previous airport at Böblingen reached its capacity. Civilian flights operated from the airport for a short time from 1939, but it was taken over by the Luftwaffe when the war began. During the Second World War, the airfield was expanded with 12 aircraft hangars and a new concrete runway, which was destroyed by bombing in 1944.

Following the war and repair of the runway, civil aviation resumed in 1948, initially only by foreign airlines such as Swissair and Pan American, with Lufthansa first establishing service in 1955. In 1951, a new air traffic control tower was built. 1959 saw the first extension of the runway with a further extension and extensive modernisation work taking place in the 1990s and 2000s. This included four new terminals as well as the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) which is used by private aircraft.
