Amman Airport Taxi

Getting to and from Amman Airport by taxi seems a good mean of transportation, since it is located at just 30 kilometres south of Amman city centre; that means an average transfer time which can vary between 40 and 50 minutes according to the traffic.

Types of taxi

Official taxis are yellow (regular taxis) although some of them are white too (service taxis).

Service taxis

Service taxis head to a specific route where you pay a price according to the destination (in that sense, there aren’t fixed fares). This service operates like a bus, since you need to wait until the taxi is filled with all four passengers.

Regular taxi

Regarding yellow taxis, they operate as a regular taxi, which fares passengers per distance and time.

You may encounter with some other white taxis, not service taxis, which stand for the luxury taxis and furthermore, as their name says, they are more expensive.


We recommend you to agree a price with the taxi driver to avoid an inflated price or a detour during transportation and also to make sure that the taximeter is turned on.

In case of not carrying small change, insist to the driver to give back the exact change since many of them will try to scam you. If the driver refuses, threat to call the police.

On the other hand, do not board unofficial taxis since you could be a victim of a scam.


Taxi ranks can be found at the public landside, outside the Arrivals Hall, in the ground level.

Taxis operate 24 hours a day.
