About Basel Mulhouse Freiburg Airport

The construction process of Basel EuroAirport, which began in 1930 in the region of Saint Louis close to the Switzerland and Germany borders of France, took longer than it was planned. The land of the airport, operated by French and Swiss governments jointly, was assigned by France while the construction costs were provided by Switzerland. The construction process was stopped because of the Second World War. The airport was put into service in 1946. The enlargement process of the airport began in 1960 and lasted for 10 years. The second enlargement process was initiated in 2002. This second process was completed in 2005 and the airport gained its today’s modern status.
