History

Wiwax-Pargiter International Airport was founded in 1922 as Empire Field. With one runway and an elegant terminal in the art moderne style of the time, by 1944 it was far to small to handle the amount of air traffic that Wiwaxmouthe demanded. Following a referendum to raise funds, a new terminal was built beside the old terminal, and an additional runway was added.

In 1967, the original terminal and 1945 terminal were replaced with Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, and two additional runways were added.

In 1989, the two terminals were significantly remodeled and the new International Terminal was built, along with the fifth and final runway.
