Historia del Aeropuerto de Almería

  • Marcos García y Luis Utrilla
Language of the publication:

From the dawn of the 20th century, when aircraft were first flown, Almería had no doubt that this means of transport might represent an end to its age-old isolation.  However, its complex surrounding landscape presented a major obstacle to this wish being fulfilled and to the first airlines operating in mainland Spain.  Almería's location meant that stopovers in this region were not a viable option. If we add to this the region's precarious industrial and agricultural situation, it is easy to see that it was difficult to persuade airlines to provide a service to this city.

The birth of the new tourism industry was necessary to enable local and provincial authorities to obtain the Government aid needed to build an airport; this was completed forty years ago. This airport has been a gateway ever since for many passengers and, of course, for airlines; this has enabled this outlying province to be in communication with a multitude of destinations, especially in recent years, due to the so-called &ldquolow cost&rdquo companies that operate from this location.

Thanks to the efforts of all those workers and authorities, Almería now has a modern airport which provides high-quality service levels to all passengers using it. 

Over forty years of history are contained in this book, narrated by means of attractive pictures, anecdotes and data, which will be a source of great enjoyment for all readers.
