History of Ibiza Airport
Ibiza Airport was originally established as a military airbase after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. It began to operate civilian flights in 1949, but just two years later the airport was closed after disputes over its ownership. It was reopened in 1958, despite construction work having been complete since 1954. The Aviaco airline was the first to offer scheduled flights from Ibiza to Palma and Ibiza to Barcelona. Shortly after, Iberia began offering flights to Valencia.
In the 1960s, Ibiza Airport was expanded several times. A new control tower and check-in hall were built and the runway lengthened in order to accommodate the island’s rapidly increasing tourism. Since 1966, the airport has been open for international air travel and adopted Aeroport d’Eivissa Sant Josep as its full name. Today, the airport sees more than 7.4 million passengers and over 72,000 flights a year.
