Transfer to the city
Taxis are the most common form of transport to and from the city, as distances are fairly short 15 to 20 minute ride to the city centre. Most major car hire companies are represented, however reservations should be made in advance to arrange for a pickup, as most rental offices are in the city. There is also a mini-bus service that passes by the airport, but only serves a single route to the city centre via Great East Road.
