Logroño–Agoncillo Airport (IATA: RJL, ICAO: LERJ) is the airport serving Logroño in the autonomous community of La Rioja, Spain.

History[edit]

In the late 1950s the Spanish Air Force ceased most of its operations in Recajo and the aerodrome was transformed to an airport for civilian use. This airport is located near Recajo village in the Agoncillo municipal term. It first opened as a military airport in 1923, when it was known as Aeródromo de Recajo. It changed its name to Aeródromo de Agoncillo in 1932 when it was used by the Spanish Republican Air Force.[2]
