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.

Taxi

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.
