Transportation to Sulaymaniyah Airport from the City Center

The passengers who prefer travelling to Sulaymaniyah, which is frequently visited by many tourists during the year, fly to the Sulaymaniyah Airport. The region known as the city center is the surrounding of the Sulaymaniyah Square located on the junction of Mamostayan and Mawlawi Streets. Generally, minibuses are used in the city as public transportation. By 2015, the construction of tramway line has started with an aim to offer comfortable transportation service in the city.

In Sulaymaniyah, transportation alternatives to the airport from the city center are very limited. Because there is no regular public transportation option to the airport from the city center, the most practical and comfortable options to be chosen are taxi, car rental or private service.

Private Service

Many of the hotels in the city offer private services to the airport, sometimes upon request and sometimes periodically. If you are staying at a hotel, we advise you to consult your hotel about this issue before your travel.


Taxis offer a comfortable and affordable transportation option from the city center to the airport. They can also be used for the transportation throughout the city. If you cannot find a taxi in the city to travel to the airport or if you see another person waiting for a taxi, you might consider sharing a taxi.

Apart from that, for traveling in the city or even to neighboring cities, sharing a taxi with others is a common alternative used in Sulaymaniyah. With this method, you can make your travel more affordable.

The biggest disadvantage of taxis is that the majority of taxi drivers cannot speak English. So, it would be better if you learn from some basic words and important phrases before your travel.

Car Rental

Car rental is the most comfortable and safest transportation option to travel in the city. You can rent a car from the offices of many car rental companies located in the city and have a comfortable travel to the airport. If you wish, you can also make a reservation online before your flight.

Transportation to Cairo City Center from Airport

One of the most important cities in history, tourism and culture, Egypt's capital city, Cairo, is hosting millions of visitors each year. Access to the city center for visitors using the Cairo International Airport, the only airport in the city, is not so easy, unlike other world capitals that host visitors.

It is possible to get to the city center from the airport at Heliopolis, which is 30 kilometers far from the center of the city, only with private shuttles, rental cars and taxis. There are also municipal buses that provide access to metro lines.

Cairo Airport Shuttle Bus

Cairo is a city shaped by the Nile River, forming various peninsulas and islands. So there are a few centers of the city. The most important of the centers are the Giza district in the east of Nile, hosting the pyramids, Wasat Al Balad, and the island named Zamalek. All of these areas are 25 to 30 kilometers from the airport. The most commonly used vehicle on this route is the shuttle.

You can arrange a private shuttle for you by phoning 19970 at the airport or phoning the same number or online in advance. You can reach to Wasat Al Balad and Zamalek at the best prices with the vehicles of maximum of 7 people + 7 luggage or 10 people + 0 luggage capacity. For Giza, you need to pay a little more.

City Buses

You can go to Ramses metro station by city bus number 111 which departs from Terminal 1 of Cairo International Airport and you can reach the city center and major centers from here by metro. However, city buses take half an hour to one and a half hours to get to the city due to traffic conditions and excessive number of bus stops.

You can also go to the Heliopolis and Nasr areas by bus and get to the newly completed metro stations from here. Green Line, one of the three metro lines in the city, is expected to reach the airport next year.

Private Service

In Cairo International Airport you also have the chance of a luxury transfer. You can choose from London-style taxis, limousines, and luxury buses for transportation.
