In March, 1993, the Economic Community of West African States Peace Monitoring Group (ECOMOG) entered and gained control over Roberts International Airport (RIA) located 25km east of Monrovia. As a result of this operation, both RIA and Spriggs-Payne (near downtown Monrovia) are under the jurisdiction of the Interim Government of National Unity (IGNU). ECOMOG provides basin security for the Monrovia metropolitan area, including Spriggs-Payne.

Since early 1991 Spriggs-Payne, formerly a domestic airport, has handled limited international flights for Liberia. It now has scheduled commercial connecting flights to Freetown, Sierra Leone; Conakry, Guinea; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; and Lagos, Nigeria.

James Spriggs Payne was president in 1868-70 and again in 1876-78.
