The major flying companies that are carrying their activities in Albania are Alitalia, Lufthansa, AustrianAir, Malev, OlympicAir, TurkishAir and Pegasus.
We recommend the following hotels, which have kindly offered reduced rates for 2-ICAUD delegates. They are located at a short distance from the city center (except for Continental Hotel, which is located in the nearby town of Vora).
To arrange your transport to and from the airport, two options are available:
You can use the Airport Shuttle Bus, which leaves on the hour from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm from the airport and the city center and costs 250 Albanian Lek one way (about $2.5).
You can hire a taxi. All taxis charge a fixed rate of 2,000 Albanian Lek (about $20) between the airport and any destination in the city center and are very safe to use.
Taxis charge fixed rates of $4-6 for travel within Tirana.
