The network mentions that the distance from Sochi airport to Adler is 35 km. This is not entirely correct: in fact, so many kilometers separate the center of Sochi from the transport hub, and the airport itself is located in the Adler district, between the coast and the Krasnaya Polyana ski resort.
The question of how to get from Adler to the airport can be solved without problems. Despite the long distance, between the main part of the city and the transport hub runs public transport (including rail) and transfer. You can take a taxi and even rent a car.
This is the most convenient option for the modern tourist. And not only convenient, but also cheap. Having rented a car in Adler, you will reach the airport in 10-20 minutes: the highway will allow you to drive fast.
It is important to immediately agree with the car rental company that you leave the car near the airport. Rent is in demand among tourists arriving in Sochi by plane, so the company will certainly agree on this option. To use the services, you must have category B rights.
Do not want to go alone? Still easier — call a taxi. There are many services in Sochi, and a private trader can be found at the railway station. You can check out the approximate prices for a taxi from Sochi to Adler Airport by phone or using one of the services (Getz, Yandex.Taxi and Uber). There are such services here, so there’s no problem finding a taxi company: you can use familiar methods.
Call the car in advance, focusing on the schedule. Note that the car may linger a little, and traffic jams are possible at junctions. The same risks — with transfers and buses.
If you have a small baggage, and you want to save, use public transport. Buses to Adler Airport go on schedule — every 30 minutes.
Departure place — Sochi bus station. To the airport goes bus number 105 and a similar bus. The cost of the trip is small — about 100 rubles.
Determine when to go to the bus station, you can, focusing on:
- the location of the hotel (specify how many km from the airport to Adler or Sochi);
- Times of Day;
- congestion of the airport itself.
Arriving at the airport should be no less than an hour before departure. Better — before. 40 minutes before departure, the check-in of passengers and baggage will be stopped. If you are late, you will have to take new tickets. Despite the fact that Adler Airport on the map is located near the city, in fact a trip by bus (as well as on other vehicles) may be delayed.
Perhaps the most convenient transport to Adler Airport is a transfer. Its cost may exceed the cost of a taxi, but this service solves all problems with the transport of passengers and baggage. A transfer company can meet you at the airport or train station (for example, if you come from Abkhazia or another city in the Krasnodar Territory) with a sign, take care of the luggage and deliver directly to the terminal or to the hotel.
You do not have to think about how to get to Adler Airport or the hotel after a long flight.
If you want to save money, you can get from Adler airport by train. There are no questions about how to get to Adler Station to the airport: you can take the train directly to the railway station, and get off near the terminal. This is an economical way — the minimum cost of a trip is 70 rubles.
You can take the train not only to Sochi itself. It runs along the entire coast of the Black Sea and will allow you to transfer to a regular train.
We considered all available options. You can choose the best one based on your own requirements and possibilities. In particular, it is worth considering that:
- the schedule of trains to Adler airport does not change and does not imply permanent trains — you will have to adjust;
- buses and taxis during the peak season can be crowded, and you risk not getting on the nearest one;
- a taxi should be called in advance — the better the day before: the more tourists, the higher the load of companies;
- Transfers are offered not only by specialized companies, but also hotels and hotel complexes.
If you are passing through Sochi, and you want to quickly get from Adler Airport to Adler Railway Station, there will be no difficulties: just use the train. In other cases, other options are possible. The most economical ways — bus, taxi and train. They are suitable for tourists who prefer to travel light. If you have large luggage and small children, it is better to take a regular taxi or book a transfer. It is more expensive, but much more convenient and reliable.
