Irish budget carrier Ryanair is to open services to the Estonian capital Tallinn, connecting the city with seven other European points.

The carrier will operate from Dublin, Dusseldorf-Weeze, Edinburgh, London Luton, Milan Bergamo, Oslo Rygge and Stockholm Skavsta.

Ryanair is not basing aircraft at Tallinn, but the carrier typically begins the process of assessing the potential for a base by opening a series of routes to other stations on its network.

All the routes to Tallinn are set to open in December and January, says the airline.

Ryanair, which was initially sceptical about the prospects for serving Eastern Europe, flies to around 20 destinations in the region and this year chose Kaunas, Lithuania, as its first base there.
