Directions for your Taxi from Ottawa Airport
Ottawa airport is the main international airport serving Ontario, Canada, and Ottawa. The airport is located 10.2km south of downtown Ottawa, and it’s the seventh busiest airport in the country. Ottawa airport is also home to the Royal Canadian Air Force’s 412 Transport Squadron, which provides air transport for foreign and Canadian government officials.
An Ottawa airport taxi or private transfer to downtown Ottawa shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. Your driver will head southwest on Airport Parkway Private toward Air Cargo Private/Airport 3 Ave, where will make a U-turn to continue onto Airport Parkway/Route 79 N. You can check for signs toward Thad Johnson Road. Your driver will then keep left to continue on Bronson Ave/Route 79 N before turning left onto Chamberlain Ave./Ottawa 62. After about 750m, your driver will take a left onto Kent St/Ottawa Regional Rd 83, and after 1.6km, will turn right onto Queen St., which leads to downtown Ottawa. From that point on, your driver will take the smaller city streets to your accommodation.
How much does a taxi from Ottawa airport cost?
It’s always nice to have an idea of what an airport taxi transfer will cost you beforehand so you can prepare well and budget accordingly. However, taxis in Ottawa are metered, and they charge a base fare and an additional set price per kilometre, making it impossible for travellers to know the exact cost of a journey.
Having said that, a journey from Ottawa airport to Downtown Ottawa should cost around €90 (CAD 121). We recommend pre-booking your Ottawa airport transfer with a top-rated company like Welcome Pickups as that way, a competitive flat rate is ensured, saving you the stress and guaranteeing no unexpected charges.
