It is important to never accept rides from approaching individuals offering taxi connections inside the airport. Almost all of them are trying to overcharge travelers.

Despite the frequency and convenience of luggage compartments of the Bus Line No19, the relatively expensive ticket price make the bus option worth considering only with the 2-week free return ride.

During public holidays and weekends the bus frequency will normally change from every 30 minutes to every 45-60 minute departures.
