Airport Technical Data

Tallinn Airport will never be the largest airport in the world but size doesn’t always matter. Our aim and desire is to be the cosiest airport in the world, being comfortable for both passengers and planes. Even today, boarding an aircraft from our passenger terminal feels as if you were getting on the plane straight from your living room. This is precisely what our airport strives for with its cosy waiting areas with many interesting shops and enjoyable restaurants, a comfortable library, spacious playgrounds for children, and other exciting options for passing the time while waiting for your flight.

Further information on the technical parameters of Tallinn Airport is available in the Estonian AIP.
