The airport opened as an Imperial Japanese Navy (Nihon kaigun) airfield in 1941.At the end of the war IT was the base of the 353th fighter squadron which défend Japan against saipan B-29 's raids and became a state-administre civil airport in 1958. It was the first airport in Shikoku to see jet service following a runway extension project in 1972.
An office park named "Biz Port" opened near the airport in 2003 to attract technology businesses, but is scheduled to close on 1 April 2015.
In 2013, the government of Ehime Prefecture and local business organizations announced that they would begin subsidizing the airport's international routes to Shanghai and Seoul, which had seen load factors of less than 50% in June 2013.On October 26, 2013, a small propeller aircraft inbound from Kikai Airport crash-landed on the runway at around 6:30 p.m., forcing a temporary closure of the airport.
Link Airs, a Fukuoka-based regional airline startup, plans to begin service to the airport in 2014.
