Tashkent Airport Taxi

Tashkent Airport taxis are readily available in front of the Arrivals Hall, although there is a bit of a walk.


A Tashkent Airport taxi ride to the city centre of Tashkent will take anywhere from 15-20 minutes, depending on where exactly you are going and traffic conditions. Always, agree on a price before getting into the taxi.


We suggest you have your destination written out as most drivers cannot read English.


If you cannot find a taxi for some reason, pick up a phone and call 067.


You can also catch a fixed route Tashkent Airport taxi (stops at certain locations only, no door to door) - look for taxis numbered 2, 16, 17, 56 & 63. They operate from 07:00-20:00 and take twice as long as a normal taxi to get to the city centre of Tashkent, but are considerably cheaper.

 Unofficial Tashkent Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points


Every private vehicle you see effectively acts as a taxi if the price is right, but there is an element of risk by taking private cars.

IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on the unofficial Tashkent Airport taxi service.

Use good judgment and here are some tips to consider:

  • Do not get into a vehicle with a passenger already inside
  • The shabbier the car, the less price the driver will ask for the ride
  • Make arrangements about the ride cost with the driver before you get in and pay only in UZS

 Pirate Tashkent Airport Taxi Serivce


Upon exiting the Tashkent Airport international terminal, a large number of men will be crowded at the (sole) exit door offering Tashkent Airport taxi services. For the most part, these are not "official" taxis, but pirate taxis. "Taxi" drivers will attempt to charge whatever they believe the market will bear. For those without Russian or Uzbek language skills it is best to arrange to have someone meet you at the Tashkent Airport.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Tashkent Airport taxi service.

Do not take a pirate taxi, you will be ripped off.

 Tashkent Airport Taxi Scams

If you are arriving to Tashkent Airport for the first time and appear to be unfamiliar with the area, expect to be quoted an insanely high rate to get into downtown. Make sure you clarify the agreed upon rate (and currency) before the taxi leaves the airport otherwise confusion and conflict could ensue later on.
