History
The plan to build a major airport for Spain's capital city was hatched in 1928 by the architect Luis Gutiérrez Soto and the engineer Marques de los Alamos. The airfield was opened only three years later in the spring of 1931. First commercial flights were not operated until 1933, when the former Post Líneas Aéreas Postales Españolas line flew from Madrid to Barcelona. There quickly followed more international routes to further European countries and to nearby destinations on the African continent. Initially, the airport was able to provide for an annual capacity of 30,000 annual passengers.

In 1944, the 1400 m long and 48 m wide grass runway was tarmacked. At that point in time Madrid had the most modern airport on the European continent.

In the early 1950s transcontinental scheduled flights to North America were in operation, for instance flying to New York. In subsequent years, annual passenger numbers rose very quickly and by the mid 1950s, the airport could already count more than 500,000 passengers. In 1953, the new terminal T2 was constructed to meet the growing requirements.
