Most of us know that Pensacola is the first European settlement in America (yes, St. Augustine, we were here first!). This year, we’re celebrating another milestone at Pensacola International Airport.
Seventy years ago, in 1952, the airport opened its first passenger terminal. Prior to this time, the airport was more of an “airfield” with very few amenities for passengers, although commercial flights to what was then Hagler Airfield started in the 1930’s.
With plans to expand our current concourse and add additional parking, we thought this look back at our history might be a fun way to celebrate our plans for future growth.
Check out a few fun photos of “PNS Past” on our Facebook page. If you have any old photos of PNS, we'd love to see them too!
