The operations of Magong Airport started in 1957, carried out by Civil Air Transport (CAT) with C-46 aircrafts. At the beginning, the operations mainly focused on transporting military personnel and cargos, and the flights were few. The construction of the terminal building started in 1966. This terminal building only contained several departure lounges and was subordinate to Kaohsiung Airport.

Magong Airport was officially established as a Type C airport on August 1st, 1977. Airlines gradually started the operation of flight routes to Magong. With the increasing number of annual passenger volume, more airlines joined the operation. On May 11th, 1991, Magong Airport took over the management of Chimei Airport and Wangan Airport, and Chiemei Auxiliary Air Station and Wangan Auxiliary Air Station were established. Because Magong area mainly relies on air transportation and the tourist industry of Magong has developed successfully, the annual passenger volume of 1994 reached to 1.79 million. Based on the needs of long-term development, Civil Aeronautics Administration purchased 11 hectares of lands southwest of the terminal area for airport expansion.

On January 18th, 1993, Magong Airport was promoted as a Type B airport. The renovation of the terminal building had been completed in several stages. On May 28th, 2003, Magong Airport has been reclassified as a Class B airport according to the amendments of organization rules; Chiemei Auxiliary Air Station and Wangan Auxiliary Air Station were classified as Class D airports. Magong Airport is in charge of fight safety, operations and facilities maintenance and repair of the two airports.

The old terminal of Magong Airport was a two-floor building, and the floor area covers 5,086 square meters only. The new terminal building is designed to handle 4.4 million passengers annually. The new terminal building is 18.45 meters tall with one basement and three floors, covering a floor area of 44,048 square meters. It is quite spacious and comfortable. The new terminal building is equipped with three air bridges, flight information display system, elevators, escalators, and luggage handling system. Also, there are nine aircraft parking spaces on the apron for large, medium and small airplanes that are not larger than an Airbus A-320, as well as one space on the helicopter apron.

After checking-in, passengers shall take the escalator to the second floor, where they will go through the security check and wait for their flights in the departure lounge. Those taking a larger airplane will board their flight via a sky bridge; those taking a mid/small-sized airplane will go to the first floor by escalator and then board their flight through the corridor without going outside. The arriving passengers disembarking from a large airplane shall go through the air bridge to the second floor of the terminal, take the escalator to the 1st floor and collect their luggage. Passengers disembarking from a mid/small-sized airplane shall go through the corridor to the Luggage Claim. The traffic flow is smooth and convenient.
