It was built in 1944, and was officially inaugurated on April 17, 1945. The new terminal was constructed in 1978. The only runway was paved in 1973, and re-paved in 1999 because it was badly damaged.

It has a 1,050m2 passenger terminal, 96,500m2 of runways, and a 1,050m2 hangar.

Since 1998 it has been operated by Aeropuertos Argentina 2000. In January 2008, 2,753 passengers flew through Esquel Airport, and in 2007 24,892 passengers.

The airport closed during May 2008 because of volcanic activities in El Chaitén, Chile.
