The beginnings of today's international airport in Poprad date back to 1938. As part of defense measures before the Second World War, a large field airport was established near the village. From 1943, the regular state service Bratislava-Sliač-Poprad-Prešov started flying from Poprad. With the approaching World Championships in classic skiing at Štrbské Pleso (February 1970), the pressure to improve the quality of all services in the vicinity of the High Tatras grew. A grass runway was paved and a new administrative building was added to the airport. Joint-stock company Letisko Poprad – Tatry, a.s. was established like other small airports (Piešťany, Sliač and Žilina) on January 1, 2005 based on registration in the Commercial Register of the Prešov District Court. On 3 December 2005, SkyEurope Airlines launched a regular service to London-Stansted Airport, which it operated until its collapse at the end of August 2009.

In 2008, Poprad-Tatry Airport carried out the reconstruction of the lighting approach system of runway 27 and the extension of the arrival terminal, which was carried out with the funds of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in accordance with the approved Operational Program. On January 31, 2014, a new departure hall was ceremonially opened, which meets all Schengen conditions. Its construction cost almost 2.62 million euros. On March 29, 2022, the airport put into operation the modern Rosenbauer Panther 6×6 firefighting vehicle, which is designed to actively fight aircraft fires and to assist and protect passengers during emergency evacuation.
