Taxi Information

The official taxi fare to the airport is 30 Belarusian rubles (a standard taxi cab) or 40 Belarusian rubles (a premium taxi cab).

There is an office on the first floor of the airport where you can hire and get a ticket. 

Airport Transfer:

There is a taxi service run by Airport Minsk offering rides from the airport to any location in Minsk at a flat rate of Br30 (approx. 13 euros).

You can order a transfer from the airport to Minsk City:

– by visiting in person the Airport Transfer kiosks on the ground floor of the airport building at Arrival Sectors 3-4 and 5-6

– by calling +375 17 279 17 48 (landline), or 7373 (mobile), or by e-mail: [email protected]

For reference: The distance from the centre of Minsk to Minsk Airport is 42 km, from the nearest subway station Uručča (pronounced ‘uruchcha’) – 33 km. It takes around 40 minutes to get from the city centre to the airport by car.

The price for a taxi ride to/from Airport Minsk should not exceed Br50 (approx. €22). For fear of being overcharged by third-party taxi service providers, avoid invitations by men with walkie-talkie radios, who are usually on patrol at the exit of arrival gates preying on tourists.

Taxi drivers usually do not speak English and do not accept cards for payment. Some taxi cabs, however, are equipped with payment terminals, but you are supposed to warn the driver before the trip that you prefer to pay by card.
