The airport became operational in 1963, originally it had a 900 metre grass runway. A new tarmac runway 1,100 metres long was constructed on top of the grass one in the 1970s and in the 1990s extended to 1,400 metres. In the 1970s the fire station and control tower were moved to the front of the airport on Riverside Road to the west of the terminal building.
