Princeville Airport opened for operations in 1977. Shortly thereafter Princeville Airways began scheduled services on September 9, 1980 between Honolulu and Princeville, Kauai using two de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter STOL capable turboprop aircraft. It served this initial regular commuter route between Princeville and Honolulu primarily for Princeville Resort guests.
The State of Hawaii in 1994 entered into an agreement with the owners of the airport to take over operations and management. In 1996 the Session Laws of Hawaii created Act 287 to appropriated $100,000 for a design to widen Runway 5-23. The State dropped the airport lease in 1999.
On May 1, 2019, Makani Kai Air began twice daily service between Honolulu International Airport and Princeville Airport on Kauai. The airport had been without commercial airline service for more than 20 years after the departure of Island Air in 1997.
