Kosovo — Airports
Pristina International Airport Adem Jashari
PIA's Adem Jashari, located nine miles southwest of the capital, is the only aviation entry point into Kosovo. The complex handles over a million passengers a year and is named after the famous Liberation Army leader.
Privatization at the end of 2010 resulted in the construction of a new terminal, expected to be completed by the end of 2012. Although a number of European airlines are served by the facility, as of yet there are no direct flights to or from the US, however easy connections can be made in a number of European cities.
The majority of flights to Kosovo are offered by small and low-cost airlines such as Belle Air Europe from Brussels, Stuttgart, Venice, Milan, Munich, and Verona. Adria Airways flies from Frankfurt and Munich, and full-service carrier Austrian Airlines offers a route from Vienna. EasyJet connects to Basel and Geneva, Turkish Airlines offers a flight from Istanbul, and Scandinavian Airlines flies from Copenhagen. UK visitors can fly direct from London-Stansted on Belle Air Europe.
The terminal at Pristina International Airport Adem Jashari offers a selection of passenger amenities, including duty-free outlets, a restaurant, three coffee shops, several bars, a business lounge with Wi-Fi access, a post office, and currency exchange in the Arrivals lounge. Two banks, several ATMs and car rental can be arranged. Ground transportation from the airport to Pristina is by taxi or hotel shuttle, as local buses don’t serve the facility.
