It had a concrete runway with a length of 2.5km, a parallel taxiway, a passenger building area of 1000 m2, a parking space for 5 smaller aircrafts and a variety of smaller service facilities. In 1966., a new passenger building area of 5000 m2 was built, the platform extended and a modern administrative building with a control tower for regional air traffic control was added.
