Historia del Aeropuerto de Pamplona

  • José Parejo y Luis Utrilla
Language of the publication:

The interest in aeronautics of the people of Navarre became apparent early on when Pablo Rada and Julio Ruiz de Alda, from Caparroso and Estella, respectively, participated in the great feat of the seaplane Plus Ultra on its Atlantic crossing, from Huelva to Buenos Aires, which took place in 1926.

Very soon, the Pamplona City Council demonstrated their interest with the construction of an airport, then in the thirties, convinced that its operations would bring great social and economic benefits to the local region. Later, the regional council would support the creation of the first commercial airlines that would link Navarre with Madrid and Barcelona, inserting Pamplona airport into the commercial air transport network.

The continuous attention to improvements, with the introduction of new services and facilities for passengers and airlines, has encouraged a greater number of airlines to establish at Pamplona airport, providing new domestic and international destinations.

But none of this would have been possible without the effort and the professionalism of all those who formed part of this aeronautical infrastructure: from the managers, those who were responsible for maintenance, operations, etc., as well as the service providers who helped to deliver higher quality service every day. This book is an opportunity to pay tribute to all those and at the same time is a history of growth, achievement, full of anecdotes and images that will draw the interest of all the people of Navarre. The history of the airport is part of their own history and of all those who feel some affinity for aeronautics.
