In 1914, construction of a grass airfield in the borough of Ans. The Germans take possession of the field on 8 August 1914.

In 1914 - 1918, the Germans convert Bierset airfield into an aerodrome.

In 1922, the Air Force establishes itself at Bierset.

In 1952, agreement between the Air Force and the Air Traffic Corporation: Bierset is then a military aerodrome of the Air Force, coming under NATO and, for civilian purposes, managed by the Air Traffic Corporation.

In 1981, strengthening of the main runway. From February to October 1981, the base is closed so that repairs to the runway can be carried out. This work makes it possible for any type of large passenger aircraft to land at Liège-Bierset.

In 1988, regionalisation of Belgium: the airports come under the jurisdiction of the Regions. The Air Traffic Corporation provides interim control until 31 December 1991.

In 1990, creation of SAB S.A.(Company for the Development and Promotion of Liège-Bierset Airport).

The new terminal, which is entirely glass-fronted, has a departure hall with a cafeteria and a restaurant upstairs with views over the runway, check in counters, car rental desk, company and tour operator counters and an information desk.

This investment of almost EUR 30 million, has enabled Liege Airport to increase passenger capacity to 1 million passengers per annum.

The terminal is equipped with electronic display systems, RX checking equipment for hand luggage, metal detectors and two conveyor belts for baggage.

The car parks, which are located close by, allow direct transfer in the shortest possible time between cars and the terminal itself (between 50 and 500 metres). Access from the terminal to the aircraft is also direct, using two fixed airbridges.
