The airport was originally established in 1935 by Oxford City Council to act as municipal airport, but following RAF use (as RAF Kidlington) during World War II, it became established as a centre for aviation education, charter and maintenance facilities. By 1968, it had become the second busiest airfield in the UK, with 223,270 movements – just 10% fewer movements than Heathrow.
Today, airport activity is split with 35% by Oxford Aviation Academy for training students pilot for Commercial Airplanes under Civil Aviation Authority/European Aviation Safety Agency (CAA/EASA) license, 10% business aviation (both private and charter) and the balance being mainly private and recreational general aviation activity.
