The bus station is located at the old terminal, next to the trolleybus station at the ring – that’s where the buses leave from. You can get there by buses #77 and #49. Check the schedule of buses from the airport to the resorts on the official website. Tickets are sold at the ticket office or online, but you need to register on the website.
Below consider the public transport routes by which you can get from Simferopol Airport to Yalta, Alushta, Sevastopol, Evpatoria, Feodosia. These are less convenient ways and sometimes you will have to make a change.
Simferopol Airport – Yalta and Alushta: how to get there
Attention: trolleybuses go to the old airport.
The easiest way to get to/from Simferopol Airport to Yalta or Alushta is to take an intercity trolleybus № 55 that goes from/to the airport through the railway station. It runs every half hour, the travel time is about 3.5 hours. Route number 55 makes stops in the following points: Alushta – Maly Mayak – Partenit – Zaprudnoe – Krasnokamenka – Gurzuf – Nikitsky Botanic Garden – Massandra. Also to Alushta goes trolleybus number 54 and repeats the route of trolleybus number 55.
The second option – by changing at the bus station “Kurortnaya” in Simferopol: go from the airport to her above by public transport (bus number 49, etc.), and then take a trolley to Yalta (number 52, 55) or Alushta (number 51, 52, 54, 55). Between Yalta and Alushta there is a trolleybus number 53.
The fare from the airport to Yalta (and vice versa) on the intercity trolley buses – 138 rubles, to Alushta (and vice versa) – 92-138 rubles, the same – to other cities on this route (Partenit, Gurzuf, etc.). Details on the cost of tickets can be found on the site crimeatroll.ru in the section “Tariffs”.
The first trolleybus to Alushta (number 54) from the airport goes in the early morning (at 6:59), the last – about 16:59. The last from the railway station departs at 22:41.
Simferopol-Sevastopol airport: how to get there
From the airport to Sevastopol is very easy and simple to get to, there are many options for every taste.
Busses: There are direct buses between the old airport and bus stations in Sevastopol, the trip time is about 2,5 hours. The bus station is located at the airport, next to the trolleybus station. Busses to Sevastopol run frequently (and every day) from 5:20 to 22:20. Also you can go first to the Central bus station or bus station “Kurortnaya”, and then by bus to Sevastopol, but no special sense in it – buses are still coming to “Kurortnaya”. Tickets cost from 150 rubles, you can buy at biletik.online.
Electric trains: every day from the railway station of Simferopol, which is located next to the bus station “Kurortnaya”, go by train to Sevastopol. From the airport to the railway station you can get on the above buses and trolleybuses.
Airport of Simferopol – Evpatoria: how to get there
From Simferopol to Evpatoria you can, as in the case of Sevastopol, get both by bus and by train. Buses from the old airport run from 8:10 to 21:58. The trip will take you 1-1,5 hours. The cost of tickets is about 100 rubles.
Simferopol airport Feodosia: how to get there
Buses from the bus station of the old Simferopol airport to Feodosia depart from 5:40 to 20:30 daily. Their choice is huge – a lot of transit routes passing through Simferopol. Travel time is about 2.5-3.5 hours.
If for some reason you need to stop in Simferopol, then you can get to Feodosia from the bus station “Kurortnaya” and the railway station. You can get to the station from the airport in Simferopol by public transport. However, it is better, of course, immediately take a bus to Feodosia at the airport – it is much easier, because most still go through the center of Simferopol.
In addition, you can take a cab, so it will be faster and without changes (about 1.5-2 hours), but a little more expensive – though if you go with a company, the difference with the price of travel by bus will not be great. The car is better to order in advance on the service Kiwi Taxi (on the spot will be much harder to agree on a good price).
The Crimea is not only resorts and beach vacations, but also steppes, valleys and most importantly, mountains. Enjoy a breathtaking video of the Valley of Ghosts in the Demerdzhi Mountains:
