Tirana Airport is 9 miles from the center of Tirana. View on Map.
Tirana is served by Tirana Rinas Airport, also commonly referred to as Rinas, Rinas Intl, Tirana Intl, Tirana Intl Airport Mother Teresa, Tirana Intl Airport Nënë Tereza, or simply Tirana Airport. The airport code is TIA.
Taxis are by far the most popular and the quickest way to get from Tirana International Airport to downtown Tirana. However, there are bus and shuttle options available for travelers interested in either option. Many hotels and resorts do offer complimentary transport from the airport as well.
Tirana is one of the major gateways to the Balkans and, as such, the hospitality industry is fairly robust. Luckily for travelers, this means a number of hotels offer amenities such as free airport pickup and drop-off. Some of such hotels offering these services include The Plaza Tirana, Hotel Mondial, and Hotel Airport Tirana.
Tirana International Airport is not a particularly large airport; however, there is still a range of shopping options available for travelers who want to pick up some last-minute souvenirs and gifts for family and friends. Some of the shopping options include Gjikondi Shpk, Albanian Souvenir, and Nununa Candy Shop.
Though Albania is not the most famous tourist destination in Europe, it is a rising star due to its ideal location between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas. Its coastal towns are especially popular as alternatives to the more crowded beaches of Greece and other neighboring countries. Some of those towns, such as Durres, are easily reached via a direct shuttle bus from the airport. And in general, buses and shuttles (many of which can be found at Tirana International Airport) are the main ways to get across Albania for foreign tourists.
Albania has lifted restrictions on commercial flights.
Health screenings may be in place at ports of entry.
There are currently 24,954 active cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in AL and 1,252 deaths as of Jan 13 2021

Pros: "I like it was fun"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "I requested a special meal. It wasn't delivered. I had called Air Serbia days before my travel to confirm that, and the lady said it was. Unfortunatley, there is no way for me to lookbthat information online. Even the gate agent wasn't able to look that informationmout, and told me it will be there. I simply had to go with 'belief' that my special meal would be there. They did not have any other options . The food they served was so unpalatable that I threw up. I threw up in a plastic bag, as opposed to a barf bag. I didnt have time to get it out from the seat pocket. When I called the flight attendant for assistsnce, she was so rude in pointing that I should have used the barf bag and not a plastic bag. Very unempathetic. They did not check on me after that. The flight was so hot, and too crammed. Old plane. The entertainment was unentertaining. I would never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Food is okay, entertainment is finally available (at least for mobile phones and tablets), crew is good"
Cons: "New sits are just uncomfortable, especially in the middle."
Cons: "Not possible for online check-in"
Cons: "Afrer a day I am still in Pittsburgh!!!"
Pros: "You guys cancelled my trip 2 hrs before take off. I received an email at 12:20 saying that my card didn't go through after telling me earlier it was paid for very disappointed . I had to rush to the airport couldn't by my ticket because they don't sell at counter and then was on phone with air Serbia for 45 mins before I could buy my flight on a long distance call which will probably cost me $50."
Cons: "Not a orginized airline at all!! I flew my whole trip with the same 50+ people. We had 2 connecting flights, all the stops that we did was always behind schdual, staff was nice but late! the worst part is, our final destination 20+ people lost there luggage including me! My dad and aunt flew with are serbia aswell and they also lost there luggage..! My dad and aunt got there luggage after 1-2days after ther flight but its a big inconvenience i have no update on my luggage yet hopeing it will be here tomorrow."
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "The movies are outdated"
Pros: "crew was great , very friendly"
Cons: "tv sound didn't work"
Cons: "I am almost 2 meter tall (6'4) and I asked more than 30 days before the flight to receive a seat with extra room for the legs, I was told that the flight was fully booked and there are no seat that are available. I then asked for the same in the check-in and received a similar answer. When I arrived to the plain I saw that I can't seat because there is no space so I asked the flight crew to try and find a solution but they said they can't do nothing. Only after I insisted and spoke with the cabin manager they checked and found a place - in fact there were 2 seats with extra room for the legs that were available!! and the flight had many other open seats (they just lied about it). A lot of the personal television did not work and the crew did not assist and did not solve the problem, but just said that this happens and that they can't do anything. This is just ridicolus for a more than 8 hours flight! The airconditioning did not work properly and it was exteremly hot. In general it was an horrible experience, the crew was very unpleasent and did not want to help and the food was just disgusting. I do not recommend to anyone to fly with Air Serbia, you better pay the extra money and fly with a real company."
Pros: "I liked the price I paid for the flight and the legroom between the seats - as I'm fairly tall - 6'3"/over 190sm, that was a big concern for me and that's why I didn't go with other carriers. I ended up having an entire row of 4 seats to myself, so I was able to stretch out and get some sleep. Flight attendants were coming around very often with drinks."
Cons: "I expected to get an e-mail with an offer to upgrade to Business Class as I was flying a day before my birthday, so I was in a mood to treat myself - but unfortunately, that never came. Once on board, when the meal was served, the breakfast meal had the scrambled eggs soaked with water, so didn't get the amazing food that others have talked about., Before landing, we were served a long sandwich that was very amateurish. Boarding was chaotic - as typical in many places in Europe, there is no boarding order - just people forming a line and getting on the plane."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "The seat, flexibility were great..and food are tasty and delicious"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly for the flight to Belgrade"
Cons: "It took 1:40min to go through the boarding process (drop luggage, get boarding pass). The actual flight is 1:20min. Total incompetence and lack of speed. This is how they worked it...They try to board multiple flights off the same counters. You stand in line for 1 hour and no movement happens- literally!?Then, since the next flight is about to be delayed - they announce for you to stampede forward, to make your flight. Then the process actually begins and 20min later and some bureaucracy on extra luggage you get your pass. Then you run through passport control and security, exhausted and frustrated (as was everyone else). Etihad should instruct Serbian Airlines in which they invested, how a plane (s) are to be boarded. After all it's over 100 years since the first commercial flight took place, its not that much of a mystery any more:)"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "I had to run as fast as I could to catch my connecting flight in Abu Dabi. Online it said I had a 1.5 hour layover but when I arrived I had 7 minutes to get to the other side of the airport. They also lost my luggage."
Pros: "Attentive crew, decent business class amenities, food was hit and miss. The selection of domestic wines and spirits was okay."
Cons: "The incoming flight was delayed until next day, with no effort on behalf of Air Serbia to communicate this. No space left for reproach, no effort of any kind of compensation. Once on board, the staff were great and did their best to accommodate this business traveller. The return flight was standard on terms of food and service, nothing special, nothing bad. The checking was another story, with lots of confusion and missed opportunities to make a difference. Mixed bag, overall."
Pros: "Good food, skillful pilot"
Pros: "Food is very good"
Cons: "Flat bed is not comfortabl, no mattras.."
Pros: "Short flight. 50 minutes one way.there was no entertainment so I cannot comment on the entertainment."
Cons: "It was a propeller plane. It was very noisy. Our seat was number five. Next to the propeller. A lot of empty seats and we asked to be moved to a different seat but was not accommodated. I would suggest Providing earplugs to the passengers. On our return trip we were in route to. A little bit less noise, but still need your plugs. On our return trip the luggage took a long time to reach baggage claim, but 40 minutes. The flight was only 15 minutes long."
Pros: "Luggage allowance"
Cons: "Too few movie selections"
Pros: "Good job"
Pros: "Short flight"
