Directions for your Riyadh Airport Taxi to the City Centre

King Khalid International Airport (RUH), also known as Riyadh Airport, is the main airport in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. It is the second largest airport in the country, after Jeddah Airport, bringing in over 20 million travellers a year. Located 40km southwest of the airport, Riyadh city centre is only 30 minutes away.

After getting into your Riyadh airport taxi, your driver will leave RUH by heading northwest on ‫Access Departure Level‬‎. They will then keep right at the fork and continue toward Airport Road/King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Rd/Route 539. Your Welcome driver will continue on Airport Road/King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Rd/Route 539 to Northern Ring Rd/Route 40/Route 80M for 15 minutes before taking the exit from Airport Road/Route 539. They will continue on Northern Ring Rd/Route 40/Route 80M before taking King Fahd Rd/Route 65 to Olaya St. Your driver will then turn left onto Olaya St/Prince Muhammad Ibn Abd Al Aziz, before taking the local roads in Riyadh city centre to reach your exact destination.
