How to get from Yerevan Airport to City

The city of Yerevan perfectly encompasses both the past and present. Armenia’s capital city has plenty of modern amenities, such as world-class bars, restaurants and shopping malls, but it’s also home to many historical sites and buildings, such as the Republic Square, the National Academic Theatre of Opera, and the Matenadaran Research Institute.

There are two different ways to get from Yerevan Airport to the city; taxi or bus. Taking a Yerevan Airport to city taxi will take around 20 minutes and will cost just €6 (AMD 2,500) for up to 4 passengers. On the other hand, taking the Airport Express Bus number 201 will take closer to 30 or 40 minutes to reach the centre and will cost €1 (AMD 300) one-way.

For a quick, reliable and direct transfer service from Yerevan Airport to the city centre, taking a taxi is your best option. You won’t have long waits for your transport to arrive and the Yerevan Airport taxis offer a door-to-door service directly to your hotel.

Editor’s Note

There's a pre-pay, fixed-rate taxi kiosk inside the airport. However, these fares are usually double that of the taxis outside the airport and there may be a longer wait time.

Useful Tips

Some taxis at the airport will use a taximeter, others will tell you a fare as you get in the taxi.
You can bring up to 4 passengers as standard in a Yerevan taxi.
Tipping your driver isn't expected, but you can round up your fare if you wish to leave a tip.

Where do I find the bus at Yerevan Airport?

The Airport Express Bus is clearly marked as you leave the arrivals hall at Yerevan Airport. Simply exit the airport on the Ground Floor and you will see the bus stops.


Although the cheapest transfer option, taking the bus is quite slow and can be a little stressful. After waiting up to 30 minutes for the bus to arrive, you will then need to cram into the minibus-style bus to make your way into the city. Once in the city, you will also need to find alternate transport to reach your hotel, adding time and cost to your journey.

Editor’s Note

If you're travelling in a group, I recommend taking a Yerevan Airport taxi and splitting the cost. The journey will be much quicker but will cost around the same per person as the bus.

Useful Tips

The buses fill quickly. Be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes before one departs.
There's very little luggage space on the bus so travel light.
Bring change to pay your driver for the bus ticket, they don't usually accept large notes.
