While Tallinn Airport will never be the largest airport in the world, then it certainly strives to be one of the best airports in the world. The whole airport's design and its many features follow a simple philosophy – to be the cosiest airport. This is an experience for all senses and is evident in the multitude of minute details, with close attention paid to ensuring the passenger's well-being throughout the entire stay at the airport.
The airport is modern, clean and efficient, yet maintains the feel of being in the comfort of one's own living room. The sense of place aims to offer a calming surrounding to alleviate pre-flight stress and put the passenger completely at ease. Owing to its compact size, the layout is logical and all gates are reachable within just five minutes from the security checkpoint. But as always, it's the little things that matter the most.
Being home to a variety of different cafes, restauraunts, bars and shops, Tallinn Airport offers a diverse selection of activities for spending time waiting for the flight. Even though the airport is located a mere 4 kilometres from the city centre, it is advisable to come to the airport slightly ahead of time to explore what possibilities the airport has to offer.
Accessing the airport from the city is easier than anywhere else – there is ample parking available outside the terminal, the tram connects the city with the airport in just 20 minutes and a taxi ride should not cost more than 10 euros. Tallinn Airport truly deserves a special mention for being one of the closest airports to the city centre anywhere in the world.
Why not play a game or stretch a bit?
Having cleared the security checkpoint (which offers fantastic views of the runway), you are greeted by the smell of perfume, freshly baked bread and excellent coffee. Tallinn Airport's shops are perfect for last minute shopping to make sure your loved ones back home can expect a unique souvenir as a present from your trip to Estonia. Look for a wide selection of Estonian handicrafts and foodstuff at Hää Eesti Asi in its new location next to gate number 3. And make sure to try amazing coffee at Kohver coffee shop or enjoy possibly the best selection of champagnes by the glass in the comfort of the wine bar Rosin near gate 9.
