History
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 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 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.

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.
