History

The airport opened in 1975 on a site created by leveling a small mountain.[4]

In 2003, a small propeller training aircraft used by Sojo University crashed on approach to Tsushima, killing three occupants.[5]

Scheduled flights to and from the airport use Boeing 737 and Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft.[6] The airport has also been served by Korea Express Air turboprop service from Seoul Gimpo and Daegu.[7]
