It is very easy to find and to use, being located in the arrivals terminal, close to the exit. There are several taxi companies with different prices per kilometer. The most popular ones are Speed taxi, Meridian or National taxi, AS taxi, Taxi Leone and Taxi 2000. With the usual price of 1.4 lei per kilometer.
