Hanamaki Airport opened in 1954 with a 1200-meter runway. The runway was extended to 2000 meters in 1983. On 4 April 2009, a new terminal building was opened on the opposite side of the runway, replacing the now-defunct old terminal building that is situated next to Route 4. Nitanai Station now replaces Hanamaki Airport Station as the nearest train station to the terminal building.
