In 1963-64 the Plant Protection Department acquired 13.09 acres land to spray pesticides by aircraft and made an airstrip sized 1800'-0" x 60'-0". Later 1970-71 by the order from the government The Department of Civil Aviation acquired more 85.46 acres land for the purpose of launching an airport in the south but after the acquisition it was closed.

In 1990-91 the construction work of the airport was started. After completing the work of runway (2300'-0" x 100'-0") in July 1995, Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh was able to open a stall-port (current "Barisal Airport") for executing commercial aircraft. At present runway 6000'-0" x 100'-0" is available. A number of airlines started its passenger flights but again closed after few months because this route is not viable for airlines business but this airport is capable of handling any type of domestic aircraft like other domestic airports. Barisal airport may be used in time of any disaster, as it was the case during Cyclone Sidr emergency operations in 2007 when it become a logistics hub as well as an operational coordination center. Facilities available are:

  • Car parking
  • Drinking water
  • VIP/CIP Lounges
  • Wheel chair facilities
  • Free Wi-Fi
