Tbilisi International airport is about 17,5 kilometres east of Tbilisi city centre. The main terminal was built in 2007 and provides good passenger services. There are number of bars, restaurants, travel agencies, ATMs, currency exchanges, VIP and CIP zones. International and domestic (Mestia) flights operate from here. The queues at passport control are usually short and the baggage delivery is often prompt.

Getting to town

The cheapest way to get to the city centre is to take bus 37 to Freedom Square and Rustaveli Avenue. The journey takes about 30 - 40 minutes. The bus stop is just in front of the arrivals hall and they run every 30 minutes. Only coins are accepted and a single ticket costs 0.50 Lari. You can change notes into coins at the tourist information located in arrival hall. These buses now operate 24 hrs, which is very helpful if your flight is one of the many that land during the night.

A new train station is located only two minutes walk from the terminal. The journey to the main train station, where you can transfer to the metro system, takes 35 minutes and costs 0.50 Lari, but the timetable is very poor. At the moment there are only two trains during the day, at 08:40 and 18:05.

Taxis wait just outside the arrival hall and are available 24 hours a day. A ride to the city centre shouldn’t cost more than 20 - 25 Lari.

If you rent a car at the airport, the route is well signposted until you enter the city, after that signage is less common. Follow signs for Rustaveli Ave. or Freedom Square if you want to reach the city centre. If you get lost, ask a taxi driver if you can pay to follow him to your destination. Taxis are relatively cheap and it will be the quickest and least stressful option.
