The airport was closed in October 2009 due to numerous damages found in the runway, but has opened again after some repairs were done.
The new terminal was opened in 30 December 2011 replacing the old terminal that is used by the Indonesian Air Force. The new terminal is at the south end of the runway. The runway was extended into 2.300 meters in late 2012.
This airport is the only airport serving highly populated city in Indonesia that is operated by the provincial government.
