To and From the Airport

Baku/Баку - Geydar Aliyev (GYD):

Location: 26 km/16 Miles E of the City, 1 km north of the Baku-Mardakan road.
Airport Overview: 2 terminals: One for International flights, and the other for domestic/CIS flights. The terminals are close enough together to walk between.
By Taxi: To the city center AZN 20-30 (New Manats)/~US$30/30-40 min. Avoid taxis offered by drivers in the customs area, as they charge much more than those just outside the airport building. Choose a licensed car with a TAXI sign. Warning: Some taxi drivers have been reported as holding passengers to ransom. Taxi drives down an unlit street where a 'Policeman' intercepts and demands money as a fine. There is then little option but to pay.


By Bus:
Bus #16 to Baku city: Bus #16 runs from just outside the arrivals zone to the AZAL office in Baku city center (on 28th May st). Cost: AZN 1. Travel Time: Takes ~40 mins. Note: Not recommended with heavy luggage.
Other Buses: Bus 201 also stops outside arrivals. There are several other buses that stop just in front of the market, a few minutes walk south of the terminals on the Baku-Mardakan road. These include Bus 149, 154 & 155.
