What started as an airfield was soon deemed unsatisfactory, and in the 1970s, plans to build an airport were launched. Sites were considered and plans were finalized throughout the late 1970s. The final contract was signed in 1980, and four year later, the original structure was complete. The airport opened in May 1985, and increased passenger traffic called for more additions with a second terminal completed in 1992. By 2011, the airport was exceeding its annual capacity, calling for the addition of a third terminal. Plans to build Terminal 4 are underway.
