From Taxi

This is the best way to go out from airport and the most expensive. The cost will be between €10 and €15 to go to hotels and Conference location. There are two taxi stands within the perimeter of the airport, one at arrivals and the other at departures. The fare on the taxi meter should read 2.35€ (daytime pick-up) or 2.50€ (night time pick-up). Outside the city limits, fare rates must be calculated based on the number of kilometres travelled and the established price per kilometre.The transport of baggage or animals implies a surcharge of 1.60€. When you decide to take a taxi, get prior information about the prices. You may get information and obtain a Taxi Voucher at the Tourism Information Counter in the atrium of the Arrivals Hall.

* An additional 20% is charged for services on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays and for night service from the hours of 09:00pm to 06:00am.
** We advise you to take the taxi from the departure (1 level up) and not from the arrival.
