Transportation from Syamsudin Noor Airport to Banjarmasin City Center

Travelers landing at Syamsudin Noor Airport in Banjarmasin have several public transportation options available for reaching the city center, such as:

1. Airport Taxi

The airport taxi companies available at Syamsudin Noor Airport are Kojatas Taxi, Banua Taxi, Banjar Taxi, Arya Taxi and Borneo Taxi. These taxis are not equipped with meters, so it’s important to agree on a fair price with the driver before entering. A reasonable taxi fare from the airport to the city center is between 120,000 Rp and 150,000 Rp. A number of unofficial taxis are also available at the airport, but it’s important to steer clear of drivers offering more expensive fares to tourists.

2. City Transport

Travelers seeking a more affordable option for public transportation into the city can use the city’s angkots, or yellow minibuses. To board an angkot to the city center, you must exit the airport and walk roughly 400 meters to the roundabout. Banjar locals often call these minibuses yellow cabs, so it is important not to confuse them with traditional taxis. Take the yellow minibus from the roundabout to Terminal Pal 6. At Terminal Pal 6, you’ll need to board a separate, larger minibus to downtown Banjarmasin. Angkot fares cost 6,000 Rp per person each way. Be sure to confirm the route and destination with the driver before boarding the minibus to verify that you’re heading in the correct direction.

Travelers flying out of Sultan Aji Muhammad Sulaiman International Airport have several public transportation options available for reaching the airport from the city center, including:

1. Taxi

Any taxi found in the city of Balikpapan can be used to access the airport. In Balikpapan, traditional commercial taxis are known as metered taxis. They are able to take passengers to the airport but are not permitted to pick up passengers there. The cost of a taxi ride from the city center to the airport is determined by the distance traveled. Fortunately, all taxis in Balikpapan are equipped with meters.

2. City Transport

Travelers seeking cheaper transportation to the airport can use the city’s angkots, or colored minibuses. Balikpapan residents call these minibuses “taxis,” so it’s important not to confuse them with metered taxis. To access the airport via angkot, you’ll take taxi No. 7 (dark green color) along the route: Terminal Damai – Stal Kuda – Sepinggan – Batakan – Manggar – Gunung Tembak. You will stop in the Sepinggan area, and you’ll have a brief walk from the angkot stop to the entrance of Sultan Aji Muhammad Sulaiman International Airport. The angkot fare from the city center to the airport is 4,500 Rp per person.
