The airport was built during the 1950s as a replacement for the old Brno airport located in Slatina (north east of Tuřany airport). During the 1980s, the airport was handed over for use by the Czechoslovak air force, and civil operations were reduced to a minimum. After the fall of communism in 1989, the airport returned to civil use, and was operated by the state owned "Czech Airport Authority".

At present, the South-Moravian local government owns the airport, and it is operated by a private company, Brno Airport Ltd. Most of the flights from the airport consist of charters. The only scheduled routes are with the following airlies: CSA Czech Airlines, which operates with four times a day trips to Prague; Ryanair, which flies one daily round trip to London Stansted; and Atlant-Soyuz in a code share with Czech low-fare airline Smart Wings, which flies twice a week Moscow. There is also busy charter connection between Brno and holiday destinations in Greece, Tunisia, Bulgaria, Spain, or Egypt.

The terminal consists of two concourses. New departure hall opened in 2006 is able to handle 1 000 passengers per hour. It's designed by architect Petr Parolek and is considered as one of the most significant projects of Czech contemporaneous architecture. Airport Brno is also often used by cargo airlines like TNT, Volga-Dnepr, or Antonov Design Bureau and handled 6 273 tons of freight in 2008. Plans for building new cargo terminal and industry zone will be realize in near future.
