The city's international airport, Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport, provides excellent facilities and a wide variety of services. Its convenient location – just 4 km from the city centre – means transport to most destinations takes surprisingly little time. It is also possible to land in Helsinki and arrive in Tallinn by ship. Another option is to fly to Riga and fly from there to Tallinn or take a LuxExpress bus, which is a very comfortable ride.
