The compact and ultramodern Tallinn Airport  is served by several European cities, including London, Dublin, Frankfurt, Barcelona and Stockholm. Ryanair, easyJet and airBaltic are among the main airlines. The national carrier Nordica currently has a limited fleet of aircraft and flies under the flag of Slovenian carrier Adria. International bus lines, such as Ecolines and Lux Express, connect Tallinn via Tartu or Pärnu to Russia (Moscow, St Petersburg), Latvia (Rīga), Lithuania (Vilnius, Kaunas) and Germany (Berlin), among others. The only international rail services from Estonia are the daily train from Tallinn to St Petersburg and Moscow – book seats in advance on gorail.ee. Tallinn can also be reached by ferry from Helsinki, Finland and from Stockholm, Sweden.
