The Cost of a Transfer from Ioannina Airport
The airport is serviced by the regular bus routes from Ioannina city. The fare is 0.75 euro. The bus has limited hours of work and runs rather seldom, what causes a certain inconvenience to passengers.
The most comfortable way to get into the city from the airport is by taxi. The cost for it is about 7 euros. A taxi stand is set beyond the terminal’s area, but the quality and service of such transportation leave much to be desired. You will hardly find at least one driver, who knows a few words in English. A car seat for a baby is an amenity, which is also hard to find and needs extra expenses.

This means of transportation provides car seats free of charge and offers to choose a driver, who speaks your language and can give the necessary information. There is no need to waste time searching for a requested car – a chauffeur will meet you upon arrival.
