Driving to and from Tirana International Airport Nënë Tereza (TIA) in Albania provides access to the capital city of Tirana and the surrounding areas. Here's what you need to know about driving to and from the airport, including main routes, safety, and the type of vehicle to use:

Main Routes:

The main road that connects Tirana Airport to the city center is the SH60 (Rruga Nënë Tereza). This road provides direct access to the airport and leads you into the heart of Tirana. The journey from the airport to the city center is relatively straightforward and well-marked.

Driving Style:

The driving style in Albania can be somewhat different from what you may be used to in Western Europe or North America. Traffic can be a bit more chaotic, and drivers may exhibit more aggressive behavior. Be prepared for this and exercise caution.


While roads have improved in recent years, some areas may still have potholes and less-than-ideal road conditions. Drive carefully and be mindful of other road users.

Type of Vehicle:

For driving in Albania, it's advisable to choose a vehicle that is suitable for various road conditions, including both paved and unpaved roads. A standard sedan or a small SUV can be a good choice. Consider the type of terrain you plan to explore in the country when selecting a vehicle.

Traffic Rules:

Albania follows standard European traffic rules. Drive on the right side of the road and obey posted speed limits. Seat belts are mandatory, and using a mobile phone while driving without a hands-free system is prohibited.


Albanian is the official language in Albania, and road signs are in Albanian. While English may be spoken in tourist areas and by some locals, it's helpful to have some basic Albanian phrases for communication and reading road signs.

Distance to Attractions:

Tirana, the capital, offers attractions like Skanderbeg Square, the National History Museum, and vibrant markets. Albania also features stunning coastal areas along the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, historic sites, and natural parks for exploration.

In summary, driving to and from Tirana Airport allows you to explore the capital city of Tirana and the diverse attractions of Albania. Be prepared for varying road conditions, traffic, and driving styles, and consider a vehicle that suits your planned routes. Enjoy your journey in this beautiful and historically rich country.
