Thanks Judy

You have to take a taxi from the Airport from one of the taxi companies there. There's a fixed price of about $40 to take you to your Hotel.

Ordinary yellow street taxis are not allowed to take passengers from the Airport but there is a bus outside the exit which is cheap but I dont know how often it runs.

I have heard earlier that the only company there is called Budget.

Rate is: 1500 SP ( about 32 USD) to take you from the airport to your hotel.

I was at the Airport recently and I was surprised to see there are now three taxi companies. All the same fixed price
