How to get from Belgrade Airport to Belgrade centre

Travelling to and from the airport is easy, and there are a few options to choose from.

Airport shuttle bus

The cheapest and easiest way to travel between the airport and the city center. In just 30 minutes you will reach Slavija Square, one of the major city squares and the central traffic route where all types of public transport services meet.

The airport bus is called A1 line and has two stops on the way: the train station and Pariske Komune street.

This minibus goes every 20 minutes during the day, and every hour after 19:30 (7:30 PM), during the night as well. The ticket can be purchased in the bus and the price is 300 RSD (2.5 EUR).

Make sure you have local currency, Serbian dinars because other currencies are not accepted.

  • If you have a lot of luggage, it can be a hassle to use the airport bus, as the space inside the bus is limited, and there is no additional storage.
  • The bus departure point is in front of the airport building (literally under the main entrance- the underpass)
  • If you need to get to the main bus station, you should hop off at the train station where the bus regularly stops, as the two stations are conveniently located next to each other.
  • The bus has the same route on going from the city center to the airport, so you can hop on at the same stops.

  11. Ngo Hung   •  

    Dear GBB Team, please can you kindly advise:

    Does the A1 run from the city to the airport during Sunday morning around 3 – 4 AM? And if yes, do you know the pick-up time from Trg Slavija?

    I learned from your post that during the night it runs every hour only, so I am thinking standing there without knowing the exact time, I risk ending up waiting for up to one hour :).

    Well, reason for my question? I saw this exact quote below from

    ….. “A1 (Direction: Trg Slavija) is operational during weekdays.” …..

    even though right before that the site says it operates 24/7, so I am a bit confused.

    Thanks so very much GBB, have a great day!

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Ngo,

      Night buses for line A1 operate every day, not only during weekdays. During night the bus departs at 00:30, 1:30, 3:20 and 04:20 from Slavija Square.

      Best regards,
      Melani GBB Team

  12. Ngo Hung   •  

    Hello GBB Team,

    A1 minibus. It is the name only, or is it physically a MINI BUS? Does it get full very often?

    Thanks so very much!

    • Melani   •  

      Dear Ngo,

      It is a smaller bus, but since you said you need an early morning departure, I think there should be no problem with getting into bus.

  17. Donna C   •  

    We have a quick overnight at the airport garni hotel. I assume we will cab it to the hotel but then wish to go to the city center. What is our best option for bus transportation from there please?

    • Maja   •  

      Dear Donna,

      it is possible to travel by city bus no. 610 to Jakovo and then switch to tram lines no. 7 or 9.
      The other option is to get to the airport first and take a shuttle bus to the city center.

      Best regards,

  18. Harish Agarwal   •  

    I will be reaching the Belgrade airport at 11:30 PM in the night, and need to go to the Elegance Hotel (~5km from the center).
    What’s the best way to go there at night? Is bus recommended? Can I get a taxi from Bus Station to my hotel?
    I also won’t have internet access outside the airport.


    • Maja   •  

      Dear Harish,

      the airport shuttle operates every hour during the evening/night, so the best would be to reach the main bus station and continue by taxi.
      However, if any changes occur due to the COVID-19 situation, we don’t have that information at the moment.

      Best regards,
      Maja, GBB Team

  19. Bernhard   •  


    I am arriving Belgrade via train at Beograd topcider. Is there a shuttle bus Connection to the airport? If not, what would be the easiest way to get there?



    • Maja   •  

      Dear Bernhard,

      first, you have to reach Slavija Square from where you will catch a shuttle bus to the airport.
      Taxi would be the fastest way to get from Topcider station to Slavija, but you can also take a local bus no. 3A that has a final stop in Savska, then change to a tram to Slavija Square.
      Hopefully, this was helpful.

      Best regards,

  20. Augustin Carbonnelle   •  

    I was wondering whether it’s possible to buy at the Nikola Tesla Airport a bus ticket that is valid for an entire day and how much is that.

    Thank you!

    • Dino   •  

      Hello Augustin,

      As mentioned, you can get to the city by using Minibus service A1, or public buses GSP 72 or GSP 607.
      In all three cases, you can buy bus tickets on board. IF you’re arriving with the public bus, you can also buy tickets at the kiosk, and those are valid for the entire day.
      For the prices, check the sections “Airport bus” and “Local bus” above.


  21. Amanda Rochelle Fouche   •  

    Good day
    I will land at airport on Saturday..which bus is best to take to Pop Art Hostel?
    Thank you very much…

    • Maja   •  

      Dear Amanda,

      you can choose between the airport shuttle A1 and bus line no. 72. They both stop very close to your accommodation.
      Central bus station where shuttle bus arrives is located basically across the street from your accommodation (about a 5 min walk).
      The bus line no. 72 makes a stop on the other side of the street leaving you with about 5-10 min walking to your accommodation.

      We wish you a safe flight!

    • Maja   •  

      Hi Michael,

      since the ride from Belgrade airport to Sombor takes more than 2 hours, you should consider the possibility of taking a later bus.
      Unfortunately, we currently don’t offer this route, there is a later bus, but we are unable to tell you the exact departures during the day.
      However, we recommend contacting Belgrade bus station for detailed information about bus departures to Sombor.

    What is the best way of transportation to get from Airport Nikola Tesla to the Beogradski sajam san and is also affordable? Does any bus take me there? Also, does any bus drive across Most gazela or Most na Adi?I am looking for the nearest bus station. Thank you.

    • Marija Štrljić   •  

      Hi Mary,

      take bus A1 from the airport to the main bus station, then transfer to tram line 7 (direction Ustanicka) or tram line 9 (direction Banjica) to reach Beogradski sajam. Another option is to take bus A1 from the airport to the main bus station and then catch a taxi to Beogradski sajam. The A1 bus crosses Most Gazela on its route to the city centre but doesn’t cross Most na Adi. The nearest bus or tram stop to Beogradski sajam will depend on your specific destination within the fairgrounds.
