Teterboro Airport is the oldest operating airport in the New York City area. Walter C. Teter (1863–1929) acquired the property in 1917. North American Aviation operated a manufacturing plant on the site during World War I. After the war, the airport served as a base of operations for Anthony Fokker, the Dutch aircraft designer. The first flight from the present airport site was made in 1919. In 1926 Colonial Air Transport at Teterboro was the first private company to deliver mail by air.
During World War II, the United States Army operated the airport. The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey purchased it on April 1, 1949, from Fred L. Wehran, a private owner, and later leased it to Pan American World Airways (and its successor organization Johnson Controls) for 30 years until December 1, 2000, when the Port Authority assumed full responsibility for the operation of Teterboro.
In January 1954, Arthur Godfrey buzzed the Teterboro control tower with his Douglas DC-3, resulting in the suspension of his license.
In 2003, U.S. Congressman Steve Rothman helped to authorize a federal bill to retain a ban on aircraft exceeding a weight of 100,000 pounds (45 t) from taking off from Teterboro because of excessive noise levels in the surrounding residential communities.
In May 2016, Ultimate Air Shuttle announced it would begin twice-weekly non-stop passenger service between the airport to Cincinnati.
