History of Basel Mulhouse Airport

The Basel Mulhouse airport was first drawn to be constructed in 1930, but the plan had come to a halt due to the 2nd World War.

The first enlargement project for the runways and the terminals were started in 1960. By early 2000 the number of passengers had exceeded 3 Million per year. Although the airport is entirely in France, it has a customs area extend in Basel, Switzerland allowing the passengers to enter Switzerland. Basel Mulhouse airport has a robust private jet and airline traffic, and it has a robust infrastructure for general aviation support.
