Opened on December 7, 1964 as a naval air base of Indonesia. It replaces the previous airport in Morokrembangan, near Tanjung Perak harbor. It was originally used as home base for Indonesian Navy's fleet of Ilyushin Il-28 and Fairey Gannet. In its development it was also used for civil aviation. On December 24, 1990 Juanda Airport was gained international airport status after the opening of the international terminal. Previous international flights have been opened to Amsterdam, Beijing, Guangzhou, Ho Chi Minh City, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, London, Manila, Paris, Perth, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo, and Xiamen.
A new three-story terminal building was opened on 10 November 2006. The building has a capacity of eight million passengers per year and features a 51,500-square-metre (554,000 sq ft) domestic passenger terminal, a 20,200-square-metre (217,000 sq ft) international terminal and 11 airbridges. There is a single runway of 3,000 by 55 metres (9,843 ft × 180 ft), separate 5,300-square-metre (57,000 sq ft) administration building, including a 15-story control tower, and a two-storey cargo building with domestic and international cargo sections, capable of handling 120,000 tonnes (120,000 long tons; 130,000 short tons) of cargo a year. The terminal used a mix of high hat roofs from Rumah adat Sumba as well as Java-Malay architecture themes.
The new apron with an area of 148,000 square metres (1,590,000 sq ft) can handle 18 aircraft simultaneously, including two wide body, 11 medium and five small aircraft. There are two 3,000-by-30-metre (9,843 ft × 98 ft) parallel taxiways, including five exit taxiways (30 m wide) and four connecting taxiways (also 30 m).
The old terminal building has been demolished and became the new Terminal 2, which opened on 14 February 2014. The architecture of T2 is modern with curved features when compared to Terminal 1.
