It was also the home base of the now defunct national airline Estonian Air. Tallinn Airport is open to both domestic and international flights.

The airport has a single asphalt-concrete runway, 08/26, that is 3,070 m × 45 m (10,072 ft × 148 ft) and large enough to handle wide-bodied aircraft such as the Boeing 747, five taxiways and fourteen terminal gates. Since 29 March 2009 the airport is officially known as Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport, in honour of the leader of the Estonian independence movement and second President of Estonia Lennart Meri.

The airport has also been used for military purposes. It has served as an interceptor aircraft base, being home to the 384th Interceptor Aircraft Regiment (384 IAP), which operated MiG-23P aircraft.

Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

Tallinn Airport Reviews

Nordea Lounge didnt have any food that was even close to be Edible...... Good free WiFi on the whole airport.. Great communication with taxi to airport, close to city center only 10 min with taxi.
- Simon

Small, clean and cozy. The interior design is so not typical for an airport. Estonia starts from the very first step you make in the terminal. The shopping and eating areas are so nice and thoughtfully planned
- Ilya Stremoussov

Best airport ever when you arrive! Calm, quiet, homemade! Interesting design for every gate. Comfortable chairs, fast internet, free equipment. I stayed there for 2 hours just because i like this place. Great!
- Viktor Shuliak

Getting to the airport is easy, even with public transport (unless you live in the southern part of the city). Automatic check-in terminals are easy and fast to use. Security check is fast, facilities are good and seem fairly new. WiFi is unlimited after accepting the T&C, food is good. Shopping area right after check-in, snacks can be bought from R-Kiosk though the cafés are generally good too.
- Saskia S

Small but nice airport. Easy to reach by public transportation from the old town. The airport was really empty, although there was some line in the security check.
- Lucas Carvalho

Nice and compact airport. Great with four sleeper capsules for people wishing to rest a while before flying.
- mhsalv

I had a bad experience with the security check. I had forgotten to throw my water bottle previously, so the man started shouting at me in Russian (he just concluded that I'm Russian when I'm not) and when I said "What? Please speak English" he started mocking me for saying what. Awful experience. The airport otherwise is okay.
- Anastasia

The Tallinn airport is very small, tidy, with everything you need for a short - medium flight. It has a good waiting area, fast security checks and for eu flights arrivals it's limited to a fast sight of the docs without any queue. It's located only 4 kms from the city center, making it extremely easy and fast to be reached (about 15 mins) with bus or taxi.
- Ernes

Very rude security check people, there's a "no pictures" sign near the security area on the entrance side which couldn't be seen because of the very long security queue. After taking a picture, a female security person yelled "no pictures" in Estonian in what I'd describe as a Soviet era tone to remind you that you're in ex-USSR. With the exception of departure security, a good airport.
- misantroop

Lovely airport,modern,quiet,lots of seats,plenty of places to get a snack/drink,very relaxing,close to the aircraft so get excellent views for pics etc,one of the best terminals I have been in.
