Almost everyone who has a car in the city can offer taxi services, so you will not have trouble finding a taxi. But you should not forget that especially the foreigners are charged very high fares. You should negotiate the price with the driver beforehand. You can ask your hotel to arrange a taxi for you. In normal traffic conditions, you will arrive at the airport within half an hour.
