The air terminal started as Tallahassee Municipal Airport with a service on April 23, 1961. The banner of the United States was introduced to the City of Tallahassee by Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I warrior pro and Chairman of the Board of Eastern Airlines. A flying exhibit was performed by U.S. Armed force airplane from Fort Rucker, Alabama. Tallahassee Municipal supplanted the city’s first air terminal, Dale Mabry Field, which shut that year.
Eastern Airlines opened the air terminal by shipping city, state and office of business authorities. On board the flight were Tallahassee Mayor Joe Cordell, State Comptroller Ray Green, Tallahassee City Commissioners Davis Atkinson, George Taff, Hugh Williams, Tallahassee City Manager Arvah Hopkins, Tallahassee City Clerk-Auditor George White, Airport Manager Flagg Chittenden, and Ernest Menendez, Frank Deller, James Calhoun, John Ward and Jeff Lewis, all of the Tallahassee-Leon County Chamber of Commerce.
In June 1961, under two months after it opened, the air terminal was the site of Freedom Rider fights. The air terminal eatery, Savarin, was assigned “Whites Only” and shut instead of serve a racially-blended gathering of church and activists. The protestors were captured and eliminated, and later carried out jail punishments after the Supreme Court dismissed their case in Dresner versus City of Tallahassee on a detail.
From the air terminal’s opening until the mid 1980s, the air terminal’s essential runway was Runway 18/36, a 6,076-foot runway with an ILS approach, empowering every single weather conditions approach, and a USAF affirmed High TACAN approach for training via Air Force airplane based at Tyndall AFB, close to Panama City.

By the 1970s, the air terminal had booked trips on Eastern Airlines, Delta Air Lines, National Airlines and Southern Airways, for the most part on Boeing 727s, Boeing 737s and McDonnell Douglas DC-9s.
By the 1980s the terminal was becoming old, and the 6,100 foot runway was excessively short for the Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 coming into administration. Runway 09/27 was changed over to a runway and another Runway 09/27, 8,003 feet in length with ILS, was fabricated just toward the south. Another traveler terminal was assembled only north of the new runway. On December 3, 1989, the city opened the $33 million terminal, and on February 20, 2000, the terminal was renamed the Ivan Munroe Terminal out of appreciation for Tallahassee aeronautics pioneer Ivan Munroe. Munroe was the primary man in Tallahassee to claim a plane.
On July 20, 2002, FedEx Express Flight 1478 crashed a half mile shy of the Runway 9 while endeavoring to land. The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed that the accident was because of a mix of pilot exhaustion and pilot mistake. Each of the three crew members made due.
On June 26, 2015, Tallahassee Regional Airport was renamed Tallahassee International Airport. On June 29, 2015 the City of Tallahassee and the FAA declared the name change. Worldwide travelers are permitted to leave the air terminal by means of Tallahassee International Airport because of the office’s full-administration “administration port” for U.S. Customs.
