The airport was originally in another location in the district of Brackel. From 1926 onwards, 12 aircraft took off from here every day. The start of WW2 ended civilian air traffic in Brackel. In 1955, the Federal Republic of Germany was again granted air sovereignty. In 1960, the authorities looked for a new location for civilian air traffic as British missilies were stationed in Dortmund-Brackelt.
In 1971 Flughafen Dortmund GmbH took charge of operations in the new location.
The first scheduled flights were operated in 1979 by RFG - Reise-and Industrieflug GmbH, later called Eurowings AG, with the route Dortmund - Munich. A new runway was constructed measuring 850 m (plus 100 m of tarmac stopping area), which had a width of 30 m. It now calls itself the Ruhrgebiet runway and was opened in 1983. A few years later it was extended to 1050 m and finally in the year 2000 was further extended to its current length of 2000 m.
