Before the Mannheim Airport in Neuostheim began operations in 1926, Badisch-Pfälzische Luftverkehr AG, founded in 1925, inaugurated an airfield in Mannheim-Sandhofen to the north. From here there were daily scheduled flights to Baden-Baden, Munich, Stuttgart and Konstanz as well as Dortmund, Frankfurt, Copenhagen and Hamburg. In addition, the route from Mannheim to Berlin was added in the same year, which still exists today with a few interruptions. The move to the current location took place in 1926. A few years later, the Badisch-Palatinate Aviation Association built a glider piloting school.
After civil air traffic ceased to take place during the Second World War and the aviation association could no longer operate its flying school, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of the Interior declared the airfield to be the first-class landing site in 1957. This cleared the way for the Badisch-Palatinate Aviation Association to reopen its flying school.
On September 11, 1982, a US armed forces helicopter with 46 people on board crashed onto the autobahn near Mannheim, killing 38 people. Because of this accident, the celebrations of the International Airship Days, which should take place for the 375th anniversary of the city, were canceled. A year later, the air rescue center of the Association for International Ambulance was founded in Mannheim.
In 1999, the Saarbrücken-based group of companies, Cirrus, started air traffic in Mannheim after the previously resident Cosmos Air had to file for bankruptcy. The car park has been available to Cirrus Airline passengers free of charge since 2002.
