History:

Dresden Airport There has always been enthusiasm for flying in Dresden. As early as 1784 - just two years after the first, still unmanned, balloon flights of the Montgolfier Brothers - similar experiments were also carried out in Saxony. »Manned« aviation in the region was pioneered by a woman. It was on 30 September 1811 in Dresden that Wilhelmine Reichard first took off in her balloon. Thereafter, Dresden enjoyed regular balloon and later also zeppelin trips.

The airstrip in Dresden-Kaditz soon became too small to handle the increasing air traffic in the 1920s, and so a former cavalry training ground in the uphill district of Hellerau was used instead. It was less than ten years later when even this space became too small to cope with the number of starts and landings. New possibilities were now sought to establish a larger air field, which could also be used for military purposes.

In March 1934 a decision was made in favour of Dresden-Klotzsche, and the construction work started four months later. After one year of construction, the Airport Dresden-Klotzsche was officially opened on 11 July 1935. A modern airport building called Hansa-Haus accommodated a restaurant with a large café hall and bars, a skittle club and a roof terrace restaurant with 750 seats. There were even a few hotel rooms. Daily connections to Chemnitz, Leipzig, Berlin, Breslau and Prague were offered.

The strategically important air base was not targeted during the war. The Deutsche Wehrmacht tried to destroy the airfield and technical equipment when retreating in April 1945, but German workers managed to prevent at least the Hansa-Haus from being blown up. The Wehrmacht moved out of the airfield on 7 May 1945, leaving an incredible chaos behind.

From the early 1960s, the Dresdeners were able to fly to Berlin, Erfurt, Barth and Heringsdorf on holiday, later there were also Interflug connections to Budapest, Moscow, Leningrad, Sofia, Burgas, Varna and Constanta, on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea.
By the end of the 1970s, the airport in Dresden-Klotzsche had thus regained international importance.

From early 1988 until September 1989, extended reconstruction work was carried out. NVA, who was owner of the entire runway, taxiways and apron at that time, had the runway renewed. Its width was reduced to 51 metres to comply with international standards. At the same time, Interflug took over the entire terminal building, the public areas were then expanded and refurbished. The terminal was re-opened just as events came to a head politically in autumn 1989.

In March 2001 one of the most beautiful airport terminals commenced operation and at the same time the underground S-Bahn (urban railway) station was opened. Around that time, a number of additional airport infrastructure projects were completed: a motorway access road, extended apron areas, new equipment halls, a weather radar and environment protection facilities.
