History of Luxembourg Airport
Ambitious aviation pioneers selected the Luxembourg Airport’s location as Findel in 1930. Ten years later, the space was used by occupying German forces as a Luftwaffe airbase. But as the tide of the Second World War began to turn in 1944, the American army took over its use for transporting equipment into the war zone. With the end of the war, the airport was turned back over to Luxembourg and used once again for civil aviation.
Luxembourg Airport‘s fairly modest official opening took place in 1946, with wooden barracks serving as the terminal. In 1948, a proper terminal building was constructed and a national airline – Luxembourg Airlines (renamed Luxair in 1962) – was founded. To accommodate steadily growing air traffic, two new runways were added in 1950, followed by a new hangar in 1952. A second terminal was built and the runway extended by 4,000 metres in 1975. Numerous renovations and modernisations of Luxembourg (Findel) Airport began in 2003 which included the construction of the current terminals A and B, a new maintenance hangar, and a state-of-the-art super secure storage facility, Freeport. In 2016, the airport set a new passenger record of three million passengers.
