Cordoba Airport (ODB)
History, Facts and Overview
(Cordoba, Andalucia, Spain)
Cordoba has been home to simple airfields since the early 1900s, although it was not until 1958 that Cordoba Airport was established. Routes to Madrid were instantly popular, although in subsequent years, the airline began to struggle with inadequate passenger levels and needed to be heavily subsidised.
The 1980s saw the renovations and extensions to the airport's passenger terminal and continued flights to Madrid, along with additional short-lived services to Palma de Mallorca. The latest set of improvements at Cordoba Airport were made in the mid-1990s and included lengthening of the runway and an expansion of the parking area for aircraft.
Facilities at Cordoba Airport are basic, reflecting its part-time status as a regional hub. For those requiring refreshments, the Cafeteria del Aeropuerto offers a selection of light snacks, including sandwiches, pastries and typical Spanish Tapas-style dishes. The Aena information desk is happy to handle any enquiries that you may have.
