Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Sochi Airport

Sochi Airport (Adler) is an international airport with one of the largest passenger traffic in Russia. It receives many tourists, around 5 million a year. They all head from Sochi Airport to the popular resorts of Krasnodar Krai: Sochi, Gelendzhik, Tuapse, Krasnaya Polyana, and others.

How to get from Sochi Airport to the city center and the other way round

Sochi International Airport is located 28 km away from the city center. Even at best, the way will take 45 minutes. But you always have several options:

  • city buses and share taxis (№ 105, 105С, 124С). You can get to Sochi train station or a large shopping mall “More-mall”. The stop is right opposite the arrivals terminal;
  • express train “Lastochka”. It operates from 5 am to the midnight. The timetable changes according to the season;
  • taxi, which can be taken on the spot or booked via the app;
  • transfer, booked online in advance.

Remember, that buses and share taxis do not run at night, and the last express train to Sochi departs approximately at 21:00.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Sochi Airport booked via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

You will not get stuck at the airport. Sochi Airport serves around 2 500 passengers a year, each of whom strives to get to the city as soon as possible. When a hundred of people are trying to take a taxi together with you, wait time increases. When booking a transfer, a car is already waiting for you. Travel with comfort and leave all other passengers behind.

You are the one who chooses. An app can offer only cars that are available at the moment. Besides, a driver may simply reject your order. In case of a transfer, you discuss all the conditions during the booking: a car class, capacity, child seat availability, and the exact time of a car arrival.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

5,60 euro more expensive. It is possible to book a taxi from Sochi Airport via an app for 11,26 euro, whereas a transfer from the airport to Sochi center for 4 people costs minimum 16,90 euro.

Transfer from Sochi Airport vs. Taxi taken on the spot

Advantages of a private transfer

No queues. Even if you plan to order a taxi right at the airport taxi counter, you will not avoid lines. And even a small queue is a stress, especially if you are with a child, a pile of suitcases or with ski equipment. Transfer will take you right to the hotel.

A licensed driver. At the airport, taxi drivers attack passengers and shout loudly about their willingness to drive them anywhere. However, they never mention if they have a license. If you order a transfer in advance, you will not have to take stranger’s words on trust: every Kiwitaxi driver has all required documents.

You learn the price in advance. The final price of a trip depends on a taxi driver’s imagination. There is no guarantee that the sum announced at the beginning of a trip will not triple by the end of it.

Transfer from Sochi Airport vs. Express Train

Advantages of a private transfer

You will be on time. Express train “Lastochka” goes strictly according to the timetable. If your flight is delayed, you will have to either wait for the next one (minimum 1,5 hours) or look for another way to get to the city. The transfer will wait for you for 1 hour for free.

No need to follow the timetable. There are often changes in the timetable, especially in summer season (from April to October), so you will have to monitor train timetables.

You will not stay at the airport for a night. Express trains do not run after midnight, but the transfer is available even in the dead of night.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

You can get stuck in a traffic jam. This is not going to happen to an express train.

Much more expensive. One adult ticket from the airport to Sochi costs 2,5 euro.

Transfer from Sochi Airport vs. Buses and share taxis

Advantages of a private transfer

The holiday begins at the airport. Instead of wasting time waiting for a bus and running to the stop with your suitcases, you can travel in a comfortable transfer. In addition, the driver will help you with luggage.

Get to your destination, instead of ending up in an unfamiliar town wondering where to go next.

Save your time. On average, a bus trip from the airport to Sochi center takes a bit more than an hour. Add to it wait time of 15-30 minutes. In case of our service, you are the only passenger and the car doesn’t stop if you do not need to.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive, because a bus or share taxi ticket costs from 0,20 euro.
