Airport Taxis

How to Get a Taxi on Adelaide Airport.

Taxis on Adelaide Airport are serviced by new sheltered taxi rank, opened in March 2013. Taxis are allocated to passengers by concierges who provide safe service for all passengers. If you suffer from a disability or have any other special request, the concierges will be happy to accommodate you by providing a vehicle that is specially adapted for disabled persons, station wagon for extra luggage, five seaters or multi seater vans (maxi taxi) for groups.

There’s an airport service charge of $2 per ride and taxi drivers will add it to your fare at the end of the trip. Regardless of your destination, drivers are required to accept the fare without discrimination. If you ask them, they will provide you with the fair estimate of the fare. Here’s the list of destinations with the approximate fares:

  • To City $15
  • To North Adelaide $17
  • To Norwood $20
  • To Elizabeth $ 50
  • To Noarlunga $40
  • To West Lakes $18

The fares above are based on regular traffic conditions and may be higher in peak traffic. Usually, you can get a taxi immediately, but if there’s a major event in city, there could be a waiting line, as taxis get snatched away pretty quickly. Taxi companies usually compensate this by allocating more vehicles to the airport. For more detailed destinations, you can use taxi fare calculator to prevent frauds.


All major Adelaide taxi companies operate on the airport, including Suburban Taxi, Adelaide Independent Taxi, Adelaide Yellow Cab, Adelaide Access Taxis (wheelchair accessible vehicles) and Uber.

If you prefer to book your own taxi, you can get contact information of these companies on the Taxi Council page. There are also several limousine chauffeured services you can book if you prefer arriving to your destination in style. You can book a limo here.
