Stanton International started as part of the Stanton 2000 Project launched in 1955. The project aim was to endow Stanton metropolitan area with facilities thought to be worthy of a large city in the year 2000: freeways, urban helipads and a large international airport, to name but a few. Stanton International was originally thought as a replacement of the smaller and older Fiorino International Airport, but Fiorino was never closed.
The swampy and sparsely populated Athloon Plains, along the Carnaby River, were designated in 1958 for the location of the project. Draining works started right away but the first stone was not laid until December 1959. The airport formally opened in 1966 with a set of four terminals, completed in 1968 and 1971 with four others, two on each side of the existing ones.
The airport underwent a large refurbishment program starting in the late 1980s. The original terminal complex was heavily modified by stage, only terminals 1, 2, 5 and 6, though modernized dated from the 1960s. In 1998, Stanton International Airport train station was inaugurated along with AirTrain Stanton International monorail system.
