According to the Int. Herald Tribune the International Airport of Tallinn (Estonia) will name its airport after Estonia's first post-Soviet president.

Anybody know what the name will be? Lennart Meri International Airport?

The official name will be Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport, though apparently the signs on the building will still read just Tallinn Airport.

Certainly a nice way to tribute Lennart Meri's attention towards international affairs during the critical years of building up a country.

Good one!

I always like having airports named after people, and Lennart Meri certainly deserves much credit for building a strong and successfull independent Estonia!  Smile
