Granada airport information
Granada Airport (GRX) is located in the town of Chauchina within the region of Vega del Genil about 18 kilometres from the city of Granada, about 21 minutes by car. Currently the airport receives flights from many international destinations such as London and Paris, as well as other national connections as Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza and Valladolid among others, depending on the season.
Granada airport has its origin in the one of Armilla, one of the oldest airports in the peninsula and now a helicopter pilot school.
The first flights that took place in Armilla were in a static balloon around 1895 and the first airplane flight was in 1911. The first civil flight occurred in 1929; this activity was discontinued after the coup and the Spanish Civil War. After this conflict the airport reopened in 1946 with national and international destinations.
Since 1950, the continued growth and limited runway forced to move business operations to a new airport to be built, Granada's existing airport, which opened in 1972 and received national and international flights and even the Concorde, the last supersonic aircraft.
