1936 - The Cairns City Council bought 162 hectares of land and built three runways made of cinders, red earth, weathered rock and sand.
1937 - The Australian Government bought the airport during World War II for use by the Royal Australian Air Force. The Main runway was sealed and made longer for the RAAF aircraft.
The airport has direct flights to 7 international and 17 domestic destinations and many general aviation flights including a number of helicopter operators. Flights are operated to all major Australian cities and tourist destinations, regional communities in Far North Queensland, and a number of international destinations in the Asia-Pacific region, with connections to the rest of the world. The airport formed the main base for Australian Airlines prior to its ceasing of operations in June 2006 (the airport remains a major port for parent company Qantas). It is also a base for the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia and the search and rescue helicopters of the Queensland Government. In the 12 months ending 30 June 2019 Cairns Airport had just over 5 million passengers.
