Hourly trips between Tallinn and Helsinki could be introduced if there is enough demand, Mr Paavo Nõgene, the chairman of the board of Tallink said on Estonian TV, adding that lowering the excise duty on alcohol had given tourism a boost.

However, he rebutted a stereotype that Finns travel to Estonia purely to buy cheap alcohol.

Nõgene said Tallink plans to build new, environmentally friendly passenger ships which will fly the Estonian flag.
