It was built in 1929, and was officially inaugurated with an Aeroposta Argentina flight between Bahía Blanca and Comodoro Rivadavia vía San Antonio Oeste and Trelew on 1 November 1929. The new terminal was constructed in 1952. The airport was named after the Argentine military engineer Enrique Mosconi.
On 22 November 2017, the longest non-stop flight ever made by the Royal Air Force (RAF) of the United Kingdom landed at the airport. The flight was part of the RAF's support in the search for the ARA San Juan (S-42) submarine which had disappeared days before. This flight also marked the first time an RAF airplane had landed at the airport since the Falklands War era.
