Gibraltar Airport History
The airport was originally built during World War II to serve the British naval base on the peninsula. The runway was soon expanded across reclaimed land from the bay, using rubble taken from some of the military tunnels running under the Rock of Gibraltar.
The Rock of Gibraltar causes unusual wind patterns on approach and the close proximity of the airport to both the city and Winston Churchill Avenue means that pilots and crew have to undergo special training to take off or land at the airport.
The airport's new terminal was inaugurated in 2012. The existing road will bereplaced by a tunnel running under eastern end of the runway, with building works currently being undertaken.
