History
The airfield officially opened on 31 May 1937 and operated from a "tented" terminal before the permanent buildings were complete.

During the War, RAF Exeter was an important RAF Fighter Command airfield during the Battle of Britain. The airfield was also used by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) Ninth Air Force as a D-Day troop transport base with Douglas C-47 Skytrain transports dropping paratroops near Carentan to land on the Normandy Beachhead. It was known as USAAF Station AAF-463. The airfield was later used by an RAF air-sea rescue flight flying Walruses and were joined by a glider training unit early in 1945.

After the War, Exeter was reclaimed by Fighter Command and a French Supermarine Spitfire squadron until November 1945. Meteors and Mosquitos made a brief appearance the following spring. No. 691 Squadron's target-towing Vultee A-31 Vengeances, which had been present for more than a year, proved to be the last RAF flying unit of the Second World War period based at Exeter.

The Station was then transferred to the Ministry of Civial Aviation in January 1947, although there was still some reserve RAF activity until the 1950s. A new terminal building was opened in the early 1980s and various other improvements, including a runway extension, were carried out over following years to establish Exeter as an important airport in the West Country. Exeter was a joint RAF/Civil airfield in the 1960s.

On 5 January 2007, a majority share of the airport was sold by Devon County Council to Regional and City Airports Ltd. On 26 June 2013, the airport was bought by the Patriot Aerospace division of Rigby Group, which also owns Coventry Airport.
