History

Belgrade Airport was first opened to traffic in March 1927 and had its first domestic airline operate in and out of the airport in February 1928. During 1944 , the airport was bombed by the allies during World War 2 and was eventually rebuilt by October 1944 to be used by the Soviet Union. However, after the World War had ended they saw a significant increase in passenger demand and required an expansion but the only way they could do this was to relocate the airport. The last flight to depart the old airport was in 1964.

The new location for the airport was on the Surcin Plateau, located near Belgrade’s city center. Building of the new airport started in April 1958 and was completed on the 28th April 1962, during the time of the expansion a 3,000m long concrete runway was built. Terminal 2 had undergone major construction during the early 2000’s and the ILS system had also been upgraded at a similar time. In 2006, the airport was renamed to “Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport.”
