Yiwu airport was originally a military training airfield for the People's Liberation Army Navy. In 1988 the national government approved the conversion of the airfield to a dual-use military and civil airport. The airport was opened to civilian flights on 1 April 1991. In December 1993 the airport was closed for a 100-million yuan expansion, and reopened in December 1994. A second round of expansion began in 2006 with a total investment of 300 million yuan, and a new terminal building was opened in April 2009.
Yiwu Airport had a runway that was 2,500 meters long and 45 meters wide, and an 18,000 square-meter terminal building. It is capable of handling 1 million passengers per year. In 2015, construction began to extend the runway by 500 meters and to build a parallel taxiway. The new 3,000-meter runway was opened on 13 November 2017, making the airport class 4D.
On 6 January 2012, construction commenced for a new international terminal. The project includes a 13,436 square-meter terminal building, three additional aircraft parking bays, expansion of car park, and building of new roads and bridges. The new terminal was opened in 2014.
