Renting a vehicle is highly recommended, as public transport is very unreliable. Reputable hotels in the area may offer shuttle transfers. Cabs are also available from the airport, but are pricey.
- Car rental:
Car rental companies are located in an annex building located near the North Terminal after Exit 3. The rental services located there include ADA, Avis, Budget, Thrifty, Europcar, Hertz, Rent a Car and Sixt.
The airport is quite well-equipped with bars and restaurants, snack stands, a small grocery store, a craft store, a newspaper stand, currency exchange, a medical centre, a post office, a games arcade and a pharmacy. There is also a duty-free store. Two ATMs are available on the ground floor. Meeting rooms and business facilities are also available at a cost.
Both short and long-term parking options, as well as a valet service, are available. Rates depend on the time of day, and can be paid at a machine upon exiting.
