The station logo depicts the nearby avenue with the same name, Boulevard Puerto Aéreo. The station was opened on 5 September 1969.
This station was formerly known as Metro Aeropuerto, and its logo was an aeroplane. Nearby were the former facilities of the old Mexico City airport, which were closed down and rebuilt some distance to the north. However, the station retained the name "Aeropuerto" for many years, causing no end of confusion to out-of-town visitors looking for the airport stop, which is Metro Terminal Aérea. To avoid further mistakes, the Metro authorities changed its name and logo in 1997.
