There is an airport in Tartu, but it is connected by flight only with Finland's capital Helsinki.

Probably you will arrive in Tallinn airport. From there, quite frequent buses go to Tartu. You can buy a ticket from the bus driver.

If you want to go sightseeing in Tallinn, bus nr 2 will take you from the airport to town centre (line destination Reisisadam, not Mõigu, the two directions have the same stop). When in the town centre, you can take a train to Tartu from the main train station "Balti jaam" or a bus to Tartu from the Tallinn bus station.

Another option is to arrive in Riga airport (Latvia). Buses from there to Tartu are operated by Lux Express and Ecolines. You have to buy a bus ticket in advance.
