The initial runway was 600 meters long, a project by the architect Mário Meneses, expanding to 1,020m in the early 1980s.

For local and national economic development in 1990, the aerodrome underwent some restructuring, once again expanding its runway and infrastructure. These changes allowed the Cascais Airport of today to be a great and national reference for private and executive aviation, as well as for training in the aeronautical sector.
