The airport, which was turned into one of the centers of American postal transportation in 1925, became Salt Lake City Municipal Airport in 1930 and started to welcome national flights. While the first terminal building was established at the airport in 1933, it was used continuously by the United States aircrafts until 1960 in the process that started with the Second World War. Renovation activities were conducted in the terminal building of the airport, which was re-allocated to civil flights as of 1960. The name of Salt Lake City Municipal Airport, which joined among the international airports in 1968, was changed as Salt Lake City International Airport.
