The airport is located 7 km (4 NM) southwest of Dole, and southeast of Tavaux. It was formerly known as Dole - Tavaux Airport.

The airport resides at an elevation of 645 feet (197 m) above mean sea level. It has one paved runway designated 05/23 which measures 2,230 by 45 metres (7,316 × 148 ft). It also has a parallel runway with a grass surface measuring 800 by 50 metres (2,625 × 164 ft).

History

During World War II the airport was used by the German Luftwaffe during the occupation of France as an Air intelligence training facility (Luftnachrichten-Ausbildungs-Regiment 302). It was attacked by the United States Army Air Force on several occasions in the spring of 1944. After the airfield was liberated by Allied forces in early September 1944, the United States Army Air Forces IX Engineer Command repaired the airfield and made it ready for operational use by combat units. The field was made ready by 15 September. It was known as Dole/Tavaux Airfield or Advanced Landing Ground Y-7. Units that were assigned to the airfield were:

  • 320th Bombardment Group, 1 April-18 June 1945, B-25 Mitchell (12th AF)
  • 324th Fighter Group, 20 September 1944-4 January 1945, P-40 Warhawk (12th AF)
  • 371st Fighter Group, 1 October-20 December 1944, P-47 Thunderbolt, (9th AF)

With the end of the war in Europe in May, 1945 the Americans began to withdraw their aircraft and personnel. Control of the airport was returned to French civil authorities on 17 July 1945.
