The airport is a small one, there are only 2 terminals: the one for domestic flights – Terminal A, and the one for the international flights – terminal B. The distance between the two terminals is about 60 m (~200 ft.) only.

By taxi

Taking a taxi is the fastest way to get to your address in Timisoara.

There are 2 taxi stations in the airport, one in front of the exit from the terminals, the other one few meters away, to the right site.

The station in front of the exit.

You’ll find most of the taxis here, both private and belonging to the taxi companies. We strongly recommend you to take one belonging to one of the taxi companies such as: AUTOGENN, EURO, FAN, TUDO, RADIO, PRO.

The private ones have only the “TAXI” sign and no other name. Most of them will have a sticker on the door with the logo of the airport, but that means nothing.

The normal cost for a taxi ride should be somewhere between 40 and 60 Lei (9-13 EUR / 10-15 USD).

Officially you can pay only in lei, sometimes drivers accept euros (the change will be in Lei and the exchange rate will probably be not such a good one). Credit card payment is possible in most of the cases.

Most of the taxi drivers don’t speak only Romanian, but sometimes you can find one speaking some English/Italian/Spanish/Hungarian/Serbian.

 

By public bus

At the end of A Terminal (domestic flights) you can find the bus station. Here you can take Express E4 or E4b taking you to the city center or to the rails station. The cost of the ticket is 2,5 lei and can be purchased in the terminal (there are signs for that). More details about the route(s) can be found here.
