History Edit

The debate about building an airport closer to Koningstad has been around since the 1960s. Before December 2011, people wishing to go to Van Draak International Airport must have taken a train to Cape Cross, and from there take a taxi or bus to the airport. Other ways would be taking Highway A1, but it was a two-lane highway and was highly unpopular. Plans for a new airport were initiated in 2008, though serious talks were only started in 2010. With Koningstad's new mayor being from the Green Party, work on this became much more important.

Terminal 1 was opened on March 1, 2012, whilst Terminal 2 was opened on January 1, 2015.
