History
The station was created in the Second World War on the site of a former golf course. It was home to various Coastal Command squadrons patrolling the North Atlantic for U-boats.

During the height of the Cold War years Stornoway Airport was home to 112 Signals Unit that was established in 1960 as an Electronic countermeasures (ECM) measurement and evaluation unit by RAF Bomber Command. The unit measured the signal strength, frequency bandwidths and aerial performance of the operational Handley Page Victor and Avro Vulcan V bombers as they flew a course towards, over or away from the unit varying from straight-lines to polar patterns.

In the early 1980s, part of the Airport was upgraded with an extension of the main runway and taxiways along with new hangars, to accept Panavia Tornado aircraft. At the end of the Cold War, the station was finally closed on 31 March 1998 and reverted to Stornoway Airport.

Nowadays the airfield is mainly used for domestic passenger services. The Royal Mail have a daily mail flight. Bristow Helicopters operate helicopters equipped for search and rescue, on behalf of Her Majesty's Coastguard. There are privately owned light aircraft based at the airport.
