The airfield was constructed for civilian use in 1935. During the Second World War, it was used by the German Luftwaffe. Under their control the airfield was improved and expanded, however it did not see much use. According to historical records the Royal Air Force used Teuge as an Advanced Landing Ground with designation B-95. After the war it was returned to civilian control.
