Arrival & Transport

By plane

more than a year ago

Tirana's modern Nënë Tereza (Mother Teresa) airport, 17km northwest of Tirana, is a 30-minute drive away from the city centre in good traffic. Beside the baggage carousel in arrivals there are ATMs, an exchange office with so-so rates, and a tourist information desk. Buy a local SIM card at the mobile phone shops. Ignore any taxi drivers harassing new arrivals and take an official yellow airport taxi to the centre for 2,500 lek during the daytime and 3,000 lek between 21:00 and 07:00. Alternatively, hop on the Rinas Express airport bus to Sheshi Skënderbej. Buses leave every hour between 06:00 and 18:00 and tickets cost 250 lek.
