Built in 1934, the airport was Brees Field until 1992, after United States Army general Herbert J. Brees. To allow B-24 Bombers the runways were paved in 1944. Airline flights started in 1945; in 1959 the terminal building was built.
The airport covers 1,580 acres (639 ha) at an elevation of 7,284 feet (2,220 m). It has two asphalt runways: 3/21 is 8,502 by 150 feet (2,591 x 46 m) and 12/30 is 6,300 by 100 feet (1,920 x 30 m).
In 2010 the airport had 11,762 aircraft operations, an average of 32 per day: 70% general aviation, 25% air taxi, 1% airline, and 4% military. 39 aircraft were then based at this airport: 74% single-engine, 23% multi-engine, and 3% ultralight.
