The first flights here began to receive and send back in 1910, when the airport had a different name - Bina. By 2000, the city had grown so much that it became necessary to increase the capacity. By 1999, a new terminal was built and commissioned, and in 2014 another one was built. In 2004 the airport began to bear the name of the third president of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev. Since the aerial node is located in the mountains, where the level of seismic activity is high, the elements of the construction of buildings were made using special technologies that raise stability.
