St. Gallen-Altenrhein is a small airport at Alternrhein in the district of St. Gallen, Switzerland. It is situated on the Swiss side of Lake Constance, which is also referred to as the Bodensee. The cemented eastbound runway consists of an Instrumental Landing System whose use is required from time to time because of the Bodensee’s rapidly evolving weather conditions.
The origin of St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport goes back to as early as 1926 when the decision to construct the popular ‘Flying Boat’ DO-X was taken by Professor Claude Dornier. The original grass runway of 600 meters was constructed in the year 1927. It was used on a regular basis for scheduled fights to Innsbruck, Dubendorf, Munich and Basel at that time. The present length of the runway is 1500 meters. You can know about all these and much more by booking cheap flights to Altenrhein Airport.
