Taxis at the Adelaide Airport

Taking a Taxi?

The airport terminal has its own sheltered taxi rank with taxi concierges on hand to ensure a smooth flow of taxis for travelers.

Taxi Concierges can also organise taxis with, wheelchair access, 5 seaters, station wagons for lots of baggage, and maxi taxis for groups. From February 2006, a $2.00 Airport service fee is payable by all passengers taking a taxi from Adelaide Airport’s Terminal 1 taxi rank, this is on top of the fare.

Concierges - Objectives of the Program

Taxi Concierges experienced in operating at Managed Taxi Ranks together with security guards if needed, can be monitored by the police and close circuit CCTV to provide a safe and Managed environment for people to access taxis, to ease traffic congestion and prevent problems between potential passengers vying to get away after a late night out.  They can feel confident that they can access a taxi safely and hassle free.  Taxi drivers feel happier in the knowledge that customers will be seeking only licensed taxis in a safe environment.
