The base was originally called Nichols Field during the time of the Philippine Commonwealth period and later as Nichols Air Base after Philippine independence. The complex also includes the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. In 1997, the base was reduced to a small portion to make way for the construction of NAIA Terminal 3.
In 2007, a Skyway exit to both the air base and NAIA Terminal 3 was completed.
The Runways of this base are also used by Ninoy Aquino International Airport
