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. 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.
