Letňany was founded in 1307, and became part of Prague in 1968. It has been part of the Prague 9 administrative district since 2001, having previously been in the local government district of Prague 18, and it has its own cadastral area (also called "Prague 18"). It has become one of the richest districts in Prague.
Letňany was the site of the aircraft industry (Avia and Letov), but as the industry gradually declined Letňany became a mostly residential district. There are two airports – the non-public international Letňany airport and Kbely military airport.
