More Estonians may soon be finding cheap Edinburgh hostels
Flights from Estonia to a range of destinations across Europe will soon be made available on-board airline company Ryanair, it has been announced.

This means that from December, more Estonians could be booking up cheap Edinburgh hostels, as the Scottish capital is one of seven destinations planned by the company.

Other cities included in this announcement are Dublin, London, Dusseldorf, Stockholm, Milan and Oslo, which Ryanair believes will help to carry 300,000 through the capital of Estonia, Tallinn, as well as possibly securing at least 300 jobs locally.

Stephen McNamara, head of communications for the low-budget airline, has praised the decision, believing that it will help the citizens of Estonia.

He explained: "Estonian consumers/visitors can now beat the recession and escape the high fares charged by Estonian Air and Air Baltic by choosing Ryanair’s lowest fares and our no fuel surcharge guarantee."

As an act of celebration for the decision, Mr McNamara has also announced that between October and November, one million seats will be available for a choice of 500 routes for only €7 (£6).

The proclamation came shortly after the airliner announced that it is to put on extra flights from London to Malaga and vice versa, which could aid those who rented a cheap Madrid hostel but found themselves caught up in the Spanish air traffic control (ATC) strikes.

Mr McNamara recently condemned the European governments who have failed to prevent strikes like this from occurring, as well as urging more competition to be brought in to prevent strikes of this kind from ruining millions of people's plans for jetting away.
