It is located 18 km (11 mi) northwest of central Okayama City and 11.5 km (7.1 mi) northwest or 30 minutes by bus from Okayama Station. It is about 10 minutes from the Okayama interchange, Sanyo Expressway.
The airport opened in March 1988 as a replacement for the former Okayama Airport located on the waterfront in Minami-ku, Okayama. Its runway, originally 2,000 m in length, was extended to 2,500 m in 1993 and to 3,000 m in 2001.

Although the scheduled times are relatively close to the departure and arrivals times of flights, this is because the airport is small and it takes relatively little time to proceed through the airport.
