Tirana’s Nënë Tereza (Mother Teresa) airport,17km northwest of Tirana, is a 30 minute drive from the city Centre. For all the tourists who come in Tirana for first time, there is a tourist information center, where everyone can find useful information where and how to go. Beside the baggage carousel in arrivals there are ATMs, an exchange office with so-so rates, and a tourist information desk. Buy a local SIM card at the mobile phone shops. Ignore any taxi drivers harassing new arrivals, but take an official yellow airport taxi to the centre for 2,500 lek, 3,000 lek between 21:00-07:00. Alternatively, hop on the Rinas Express airport bus (250 lek) to Skanderbeg Square, departing every hour between 06:00 and 18:00.
