The Aichi Electric Railway opened the Ōno (now Ōnomachi) to Tenma (since closed) section in 1912, electrified at 600 V DC, and extended the line 500 m to Jingū-mae and from Ōnomachi to Tokoname the following year. The Ōe to Ōnomachi section was double-tracked between 1920 and 1925, and in 1929, the voltage was increased to 1,500 V DC.

In 1935, the company merged with Meitetsu, and in 1942, the Jingū-mae to Ōe section was double-tracked.

The Ōnomachi to Tokoname section was double-tracked between 1962 and 1972, and the Meitetsu Airport Line extension opened in 2005.
