The Royal Air Force base, RAF Kirmington, was opened in 1941 and operated the Avro Lancaster bomber with 166 Squadron.

After the war, the airfield was unused until 1974 when it was reopened as Kirmington Airport by the local council. When the local area was renamed Humberside then the airport was renamed Humberside Airport. In 1992, the main runway was extended to 7,205ft to allow the operations of larger aircraft. Humberside Airport was sold to Eastern Group in 2012.

Humberside Airport has stiff competition from East Midlands Airport, Robin Hood Airport, and Leeds Bradford International Airport. All these other airports offer a wider range of scheduled flights than Humberside Airport.

The airport is also used to service the offshore gas storage and drilling operations for BP and Centrica Storage with over 8,000 air transport helicopter movements in 2011. On 3 January 2013 it was reported that Bond Offshore Helicopters had been awarded a contract with Perenco and would start operating flights to Perenco's platforms in the Southern North Sea. Bristow Helicopters operate a UK Search and Rescue base at Humberside from April 2015. It is also home to five resident flying clubs and organisations.

Humberside Airport faces competition for flights from East Midlands Airport (70 mi (110 km)), Doncaster Sheffield Airport (28 mi (45 km)) which opened in 2005 and Leeds Bradford Airport (74 mi (119 km)); all of which have at 2021 a much wider range of scheduled passenger flights. Passengers at the airport peaked in the early to mid-2000s when the facility was used by around 500,000 per year. This fell to around 200,000 passengers in 2016.
