Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Baku Airport “Heydar Aliyev” to Baku city center

Baku Airport is named after the third President of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev. There are two terminals: one for international destinations and one for domestic flights. Baku Airport accepts aircrafts of all types. From here, you can go to Baku train station, as well as to the resort towns of Azerbaijan: ski resort of Shahdag and the health resort of Naftalan.

How to get from Baku Airport to the city center or the other way round

The airport is located 25 km from the capital. There are several ways to get there:

  • Express bus H1. Buses run around the clock. From 6 am to 9 pm, the interval is 30-40 minutes, and from 9 pm to 6 am, it is 1 hour. The travel time from Baku airport to the terminal stop “28 May square” is 30 minutes;
  • Taxi. You can order a taxi from Baku Airport to the city center by phone as well as through mobile apps, or find one at the special ranks;
  • Transfer. You can book it online.

The train station is very close to the final Express bus stop, as well as the metro. It will only take you a couple of stations to get to the main attractions of the Old Town from the airport.

Transfer from Baku Airport vs. Taxi booked by phone or via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

You will certainly get a cab once arrived, whereas official taxi might be difficult to find especially during rush hours.

A comfortable seat for each passenger. Official taxis in Baku are designed for five people, but in fact, there are only 2 comfortable seats. A third person in the back of a taxi cab has to sit at the junction of two seats, and two passengers in front have to go on folding seats with an uncomfortable headrest.

You know the final price in advance. It can happen that Baku taxi drivers change the price during the trip, saying that the starting price did not include additional fares, for example, being in traffic jams. The cost of the transfer is fixed after the prepayment, no matter what happens.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

The price is twice as high. The average taxi fare is 14 dollars, while the transfer from the airport with an economy class car costs 30 dollars.

Transfer from Baku Airport vs. Express Bus

Advantages of a private transfer

Transfer is easier to pay for. You can buy a ticket for the Airport Express at the ticket machine, but it’s in Azerbaijani language only and it does not accept bank cards. A transfer can be fully paid online.

Transfer is faster. If you arrive at the airport after 21:00, you might have to wait for the bus for about an hour, although the journey itself takes only 30 minutes.

You will go to your destination directly. The Express will take you to “28 May metro station”. From there, you still have to get to the hotel, and there is a chance to get lost as Baku is quite a complicated city.

The disadvantage of a private transfer

It’s much more expensive. A ticket for the Express bus costs only $0.75.
