The present day site of the Port Moresby International Airport began as an airfield in 1940 when a runway was built by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in recognition of the strategic importance of Port Moresby in the event of war in the Pacific.

During World War 2 the original runway was upgraded and two additional runways were added by the United States Air Force. These were made by using pierced steel planking (Marsden Matting). The existing passenger terminal was constructed in 1959, while a concrete, apron and parallel taxiway were completed in 1963.
