Sochi Airport

Coming to prominence fairly recently, the Sochi/Adler International Airport, known commonly as Sochi Airport, saw hundreds of thousands of people pass through its gates during the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Sochi is one of Russia’s resort cities, as this beautiful town nestles up against the atmospheric and lovely Black Sea.

Originally an airfield constructed to aid in the World War II military effort, Sochi Airport is now one of the country’s busiest transport hubs.  

The airport has one main terminal building which handles all passengers flying through to Sochi. This has all the amenities you’d typically expect of a modern airport, such as a bank with currency exchange services, information desks, a post office, and a family room. There is no current access to WiFi but the airport has stated that they are hoping to implement wireless internet fairly soon. 

If you’re looking to sit down and eat something pre or post flight you’ll be happy to know that Sochi Airport has a few café and bar area, though be aware that a couple of these are situated in the VIP area of the airport which are specifically designated for first class and business passengers. There are also a few shops where you can browse for reading materials, confectionary and souvenirs.  

Please note all information is current as of March 2016.

 Getting to & from the Airport

Driving hide 

If you want to rent a car, you can secure one through Hertz, which operates out of Sochi Airport. The drive into town is pretty direct and shouldn’t take you more than half an hour if traffic is light. Take the A-147, which will become the E-97, then take the A-148 directly into town.  

Trains hide 

Since the Winter Olympics, there is a light rail system that runs between AER airport and the city, but this service is frequently suspended, so ensure that you ask upon arrival whether the railway is operating. If it is, expect the cost of a journey into town to cost 200-300RUB ($4-6). 

Buses hide 

There are several bus lines that run into downtown Sochi, the main routes you’ll want to look out for are Routes 105 and 124, which will take you to the Sochi central train station, Route 51 which will take you to Adler and its central market, and Route 135 which will take you from AER airport to Krasnaya Polyana.  

Taxi hide 

It is usually best to book taxis in advance because the drivers don’t always speak English. This way you can also secure the approximate price of your journey. For central Sochi though, expect a journey to take around about 500-1000RUB ($10-20).
