History First opened in 1928, and until 1940, the airport's initial site was at the intersections of Highways 97 and 16 (the same site is currently being used as a golf course). During the 1930s and 40s, it also contained Pineview Elementary, which was renamed the Airport School. In 1941, after the completion of runway 14-32, Pan American Airways operated from the Pince George Airport as a stopover location on its Seattle to Fairbanks route. In 1942, Canadian Pacific Airlines began offering scheduled flights six times a week to Prince George. In 1953, the first lights were installed along runway 14-32. Later that same year, a United States Air Force B-29 was forced to make an emergency landing along the same runway. It landed 18 inches deep inside the tarmac.

The Prince George Airport was commercialized in 1963 when Mrs. P. Richardson opened the first coffee shop in the terminal.
