The airport Montpellier-Méditerranée was founded in 1938, shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, under the old name of Fréjorgues. In the war the French Air Force used the airport. During the occupation of France, the airport was bombed twice: on 27th January and on 27 th May 1944 by the German armed forces. After the end of the war the damage was quickly repaired and in 1946 air traffic could be resumed. With the rapid development of the aviation industry at the beginning of the 1960s, passenger numbers in Montpellier increased quickly. In the fiscal year of 1990 more than 1 million passengers were counted and the new terminal consequently expanded. Finally, in 1994 the airport was renamed Montpellier-Méditerranée.
