How to get to the airport from IC3

In general is recommended to be at the airport at least 2 hours before the departure of your flight in case of an international and at least 1,5 hours in case of a European- or nationwide flight.

If you need a taxi for going to the airport, you may contact the administration team for a reservation or book it online, for example here. The distance from IC3 to the airport is roughly 20km. Depending on the traffic, the travel time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes. Rush hours are typically around 08-09, 14-15 and 18-19 o'clock, and it is recommended to avoid these times for travelling if possible.

In case you are planning to go to the airport via public transport, the travel time is approximately one hour and you have two options. You may go by metro and aerobus or metro and train.
