The Inauguration of Sion Airport.

In 1935, Sion Council placed the Valais Aéro-Club in charge of operating the airport. The first Valais aviation school was also opened in Sion.

The legendary Hermann Geiger

Hired in 1946 as the airport’s first director, one man would go on to shape the destiny of Swiss aviation in Sion and the Valais. This man was Hermann Geiger, ‘The Glacier Pilot’ and a pioneer of mountain rescue.

The first air show

The first air show took place in Sion in 1982. Further editions of the event were held in 1986, 1989, 1997, 2001 and 2011 and were attended by up to 100,000 people.

The first instrument landing system

A new milestone was reached in 1991 with the inauguration of a new terminal as well as an IGS (instrument guidance system), opening the way for charter flights to land at Sion Airport.

A new instrument landing system

On 15 February 2016, Sion Airport introduced a new instrument landing system based on a GPS system called RNAV (RNP 0.3) on runway 25. This complemented the existing IGS 25 and enabled an increase in the degree of precision.
