We offer locals and visitors thousands of cultural events within the 251 projects of the European Capital of Culture. We also cooperated successfully with Liverpool on the developing our Tallinn hospitality programme for 2011 which has been influenced by the 2008 Liverpool Welcome programme. Our visitors will receive a very warm welcome here in Tallinn.”
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Peel Airports added: “This is a great new route for the Airport as it links one former European Capital of Culture, with the current holder of this accolade. It also means we now have new direct flights to Estonia.”
The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Hazel Williams said: “We in Liverpool are delighted that this route opens up a direct connection between two European Capitals of Culture. We hope people from both cities will take the opportunity to visit Liverpool and Tallinn to see the way both of these fantastic cities have benefited from European Capital of Culture status to promote the outstanding programme of events and activities they offer to visitors.”
