The electoral district was created in 2010. Incumbent Airdrie-Chestermere MLA Rob Anderson, who had been elected as a PC in 2008 but crossed the floor to Wildrose, was elected in Airdrie under the Wildrose banner in 2012. However, he subsequently crossed the floor back to the PCs.
Wildrose would re-gain the seat in 2015, sending Angela Pitt to the Legislative Assembly. She would also cross the floor, joining the new United Conservative Party when the PCs and Wildrose decided to merge in 2017.
The riding will be abolished when the 29th Legislature expires. Therefore, Airdrie has twice elected Wildrose MLAs, but neither served their full term with the party.
