Sultan Iskandar Muda International Airport - The Unofficial Airports Guide

Banda Aceh Airport Transfers

On exiting customs or domestic baggage claim at the airport, you'll be practically assaulted by taxi touts offering to take you anywhere. The ride into the city will take around 20 minutes, depending on the time of day and traffic. If you're headed to Pulau Weh and want to go to the ferry terminal, note that there is a bus service which will take you directly there.

If you are going to Pulau Weh and know where you're staying, you might wish to consult them about arranging a 'VIP' transfer. This includes an airport pickup to the ferry terminal, the ferry fare and a pickup on the Pulau Weh end. Likewise, several hotels around Banda Aceh offer free airport transfers.
