  • Opened in 1938, when it replaced the old airfield at Fen Ditton, the airport is owned and operated by Marshall Aerospace, a Cambridge-based company with many years' history servicing civilian and military contracts.
  • Cambridge International Airport (CBG) has 3 runways.
  • In 2000, a proposal was created to relocate the airport to a new site away from the city, which would have freed up 500 acres of land for the building of several thousand new homes.
  • Because of Cambridge International Airport's relatively low elevation of 47 feet, planes can take off or land at Cambridge International Airport at a lower air speed than at airports located at a higher elevation. This is because the air density is higher closer to sea level than it would otherwise be at higher elevations.
