The original Norwich Airport was on the site of a WWI aerodrome on Mousehold Heath but it fell into disuse during WWII. The Heartsease housing estate now covers this area.

The present Norwich Airport was formerly RAF Horsham St Faith and was opened in 1940 operating bomber aircraft. From 1942, the base (Station 123 (HF)) was made available for the USAAF for use by the Eighth Air Force. In 1945, the airfield was taken over by RAF Fighter Command and was a front-line RAF station operating four Gloster Meteor Squadrons. The station was deactivated in August 1963.

After the Royal Air Force left in the late 1960s, the airfield and buildings were sold to Norwich City and Norfolk County Council who have since developed the airport. A small part of the site was retained by the Ministry of Defence.

The airport also features the private City of Norwich Aviation Museum to the north of the site by the control tower, commemorating the airfield's history as a military airfield and development as a civil airport through the years, with many civil and military aircraft on display - many of which served from the aerodrome at some point in their lifetime.

Most of the World War II buildings used by the USAAF remain, although converted for a variety of purposes. Two of the five large pre-war hangars are still being used for aircraft maintenance. One of the other three has been converted into an aviation academy, the remaining two have been converted for commercial use by Air Livery and KLM UK Engineering.

Whilst most runways and taxiways from the military airfield remain, only one runway is primarily used, to avoid takeoffs and landings over built-up areas: Runway 09/27, which was extended eastwards by the RAF in 1956 to 1,841 metres long. The old 04/22 runway is no longer used for takeoffs or landings, but is used for parking and taxiing of aircraft.

In 1988, the airport terminal building opened and next to this is a memorial display to the USAAF commemorating the American use of the airfield. In 2004, Omniport bought an 80.1% stake in the airport while the City and County Councils retained a 19.9% stake. In 2005, a terminal expansion programme began. The airport was sold by the majority stakeholders of Omniport to the Rigby Group PLC in 2014. In July 2019, Norfolk County Council and Norwich City Council sold their remaining 19.9% stake in the airport to Regional and City Airports.
