Getting from the airport to the conference venue/hotel

The city is 4 kms from the airport and you can reach it by tramway or taxi.

The tramway (line #4, direction: “Tondi”) can be taken at the exit of the airport terminal. It reaches Tallinn city centre in about 15 minutes. To reach the conference venue, you should get off at the “Viru” stop, which is in a shopping centre right next to Sokos Viru Hotel. The tram runs from around 5:30am until around 00:45, allowing passengers arriving on late night flights to reach the city. The tram tickets cost 2 euros when purchased from the driver. Information on tram lines and stops can be found HERE.

The taxi fare from the airport to city centre can vary between 5 and 8 euros. There is a taxi rank at the exit of the airport terminal.

When taking a taxi from the city, do make sure that you check the fares before getting into the taxi (they are printed on the window). Some taxi companies apply higher fares than others.
