Since 29 March 2009 Tallinn Airport has borne the name of former president Lennart Meri. The original terminal was built in the lead-up to the Moscow Olympics in 1980, when Tallinn hosted the sailing regatta. It was designed by architect Mihhail Piskov and interior designer Maile Grünberg.

Aviation took flight in Estonia in the 1920s. The shores of Lake Ülemiste have been the take-off point for aircraft since the very beginning. According to a 1934 edition of the 'Postimees' newspaper, Tallinn Airport was one of the largest in Europe at the time: "No other airport, at least in Eastern Europe, can compete with it," the article claimed.

The airport was officially opened on 20 September 1936.
