Transportation and parking
The airport is close to the city of Asmara and is reasonably served by buses and taxis. However, travellers with larger amounts of luggage would be well advised to pre-book a taxi through their hotel, as buses to the airport can be very crowded. There is limited available parking for short- and long-term stays, and spaces do fill up quickly.
At the airport
