The airport of Culebra was originally built as a military airport by the United States Marine Corps, opening in 1957. In 1965, the government of Puerto Rico started flying civilians from San Juan to the island with a Legislative compensation.


After the Navy-Culebra protests, the Puerto Rico Ports Authority started administering the civilian FLIGHT operations in Culebra, inaugurating the first Passenger terminal in October 24, 1976. The airport and its 80 acres were officially transferred to the Ports Authority in 1980.


A new Passenger terminal was inaugurated in 1994, and its name was changed to Benjamín Rivera Noriega, in honor of a pilot from Ciales. He became a community leader recognized by his Service to the residents of Culebra.


Benjamín Rivera Noriega Airport covers an area of 15 acres (6 ha) at an elevation of 49 feet (15 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 13/31 with an asphalt surface measuring 2,600 by 50 feet (792 x 15 m). For the 12-month period ending March 16, 1998, the airport had 36,322 aircraft operations, an average of 99 per day: 93% air taxi and 7% general aviation.
