==History==
 
==History==
Saviso had originally been served by a small landing strip constructed at [[Auchi]] in 1918. While traffic volumes had been light in the 1920s and 1930s, by the early 1940s the facilities at Auchi were insufficient to cope with growing passenger numbers. In 1943 the St Austellian government began investigating possible solutions, including an expensive expansion of the airport facilities that would have resulted in the demolition of hundreds of homes and businesses; the second option the construction of new facilities on Cobalt Island that, while relatively undeveloped, were inaccessible prior to the construction of the Cobalt Island Bridge in 1951. The third option, selected in November 1944, was the construction of a larger airport on undeveloped land west of the Saviso River at Fyanstown. The land was purchased for a total of [[Vodean pound|V£]]39,300, and construction on the airport began in early 1946.

While traffic volumes had been light in the 1920s and 1930s, by the 1940s the facilities at Coraina were insufficient to cope with growing passenger numbers. In 1947 the St Austellian government began investigating possible solutions; these included an expensive expansion of the airport facilities that would have resulted in the demolition of hundreds of homes and businesses; a proposal to expand the existing Royal Vodean Air Force (RVAF) seaplane base on Cobalt Island that, while relatively undeveloped, would have required significant earthworks; and similarly, the redevelopment of the RVAF base near Crulukaes, west of the mouth of the Grable River. The base had been constructed in 1936 and had seen extensive use during the Great War, but in the late 1940s was surplus to requirements owing to the pending expansion of the RVAF base at Casserres. The third option was selected in December 1948, and works began in September 1949.
  
Saviso International Airport was officially opened on St Austell Day (26 September) 1954, by [[Premier of Vodeo|Premier]] [[Guy Bradford]] and Governor Tom Avery; the first flight to leave that day was a Stranraer 97 Alticruiser jetliner bound for Holme. Auchi Airport closed on 31 December 1954 and was demolished in 1955; however, part of Auchi Airport remains in the [[Baltic Hills Motorway]], which was built atop where the former runway was located, parallel to the Meredith Inlet .

Saviso International Airport was officially opened on St Austell Day, 26 September 1951, by Premier [[Guy Bradford]] and Governor Tom Avery; the first flight to leave that day was a Mercer 97 Alticruiser bound for Holme. Coraina Airport closed on 31 December 1951 and was demolished in 1952; the site is today covered in suburban development.
  
The airport was renamed Saviso Bradford Airport on 13 April 1990 in honour of former Premier Guy Bradford on what would have been his 100th birthday; to mark the change, Saviso Bradford's ANACA code was altered from LVSA to LVSB in 1993. In 1995 a number of the public streets around the airport were renamed, including the main thoroughfare, which was renamed Constance Whitehead Drive in honour of [[Constance Whitehead]], an early St Austellian aviatrix.

===Future===
 
In 1979 the St Austellian government began investigating into the feasibility of either upgrading the existing airfield on [[Cobalt Island]] or constructing a new airport to the southwest of the city near Aberfeldy, but over the course of the following thirty years the plans gained little traction. A national government report into the future of Saviso Bradford published in 2008 stated that the airport would likely reach capacity between 2025 and 2035, and by 2040 be unable to cope with growing passenger volumes. Further studies in 2009 and 2010 proposed either an upgrade to Cobalt Island Airport, which had been upgraded in 1995, or the construction of an airport at Aberfeldy. In 2011 the [[Victoria Stobie|Stobie]] government selected Cobalt Island Airport to be the site of Saviso's second airport. The airport's upgrade is planned to be completed and operational by late 2019 or early 2020 as a fully domestic airport, with added capacity for upgrading to international standard in the future. Saviso Bradford will remain Saviso's international airport following the completion of the upgrade.

History

Saviso had originally been served by a small landing strip constructed at Coraina in 1918. While traffic volumes had been light in the 1920s and 1930s, by the 1940s the facilities at Coraina were insufficient to cope with growing passenger numbers. In 1947 the St Austellian government began investigating possible solutions; these included an expensive expansion of the airport facilities that would have resulted in the demolition of hundreds of homes and businesses; a proposal to expand the existing Royal Vodean Air Force (RVAF) seaplane base on Cobalt Island that, while relatively undeveloped, would have required significant earthworks; and similarly, the redevelopment of the RVAF base near Crulukaes, west of the mouth of the Grable River. The base had been constructed in 1936 and had seen extensive use during the Great War, but in the late 1940s was surplus to requirements owing to the pending expansion of the RVAF base at Casserres. The third option was selected in December 1948, and works began in September 1949.

Saviso International Airport was officially opened on St Austell Day, 26 September 1951, by Premier Guy Bradford and Governor Tom Avery; the first flight to leave that day was a Mercer 97 Alticruiser bound for Holme. Coraina Airport closed on 31 December 1951 and was demolished in 1952; the site is today covered in suburban development.

The airport was renamed Saviso Bradford Airport on 13 April 1990 in honour of former Premier Guy Bradford on what would have been his 100th birthday. In 1995 a number of the public streets around the airport were renamed, including the main thoroughfare, which was renamed Constance Whitehead Drive in honour of Constance Whitehead, an early St Austellian aviatrix.
