The airport is classified as an airport of entry by Nav Canada and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). CBSA officers at this airport can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers. There are regular flights going and arriving into the airport, but they come almost entirely from Inuvik.
The airport is named for James Gruben a local bush pilot/businessman who was killed on the ice road from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk on 13 April 2001. He was the owner of the only 100% Inuvialuit-owned transportation company, E. Gruben's Transport Ltd., that was passed down to him from his father Eddie Gruben and is still in business to this day.
