In 1991 construction started on Dayong Airport, which had its first test flight in December 1993 (Dayong is the former name of Zhangjiajie City).[3]

The airport eventually opened for commercial flights under the name Dayong Zhangjiajie Airport on 18 August 1994.[4] In 1995 it was renamed Zhangjiajie Hehua Airport. In 1999 it served 500,000 passengers annually.[5]

In 2011 the first international flight (excluding Macao and Hong Kong) arrived from Seoul's Incheon International Airport.[3]

In 2015 the second terminal opened after an 18 months construction period.[3]
