Strasbourg Airport history

The first airport in the Strasbourg region was Polygon Airport in Neuhof. After the First World War, the airport, which was originally a military airport, became insufficient for civil aviation and a new airport had to be built. The choice for the new port was made in favour of the commune of Entzheim, southwest of Strasbourg. The new airport was inaugurated in February 1923. The new port was a quadrangle measuring 900 by 750 metres with a grass runway and was built on land belonging to the Strasbourg civil hospitals. The site was located between the village of Entzheim and the Strasbourg-Saint-Dié railway line, near Hangenbieten and Holtzheim.

The new Entzheim aerodrome was mainly operated by the Franco-Romanian Company. In 1925, the 53-hectare site was equipped with a meteorological station and a radio transmitter, which made night flights possible. In 1931, traffic was 1,186 passengers and 6 million postal letters. The surface area of the airport reached 85 hectares, while the runway was extended to 950 metres. Four hangars were also built on the site. In 1939, the airport covered an area of 120 hectares and included an air terminal and several hangars. However, when the Second World War broke out, all flights were suspended.

In 1943, the Germans reopened the airport and carried out some expansion works. After the liberation of Strasbourg in November 1944, the airport passed to Allied control and the runway was extended to 1,525 metres. In 1946, the facility was civilianised again and its operation was transferred to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Strasbourg and the Lower Rhine.

Between 1950 and 1959, a NATO standard airbase was built on the site. Entzheim then became a mixed airport, both civilian and military. A new terminal was built in 1957 and in 1963 Strasbourg-Entzheim was classified as an “open international airport”.

The terminal was remodelled and expanded three times, in 1973, 1988 and 1999.
