Internet and wi-fi

Wi-fi is free and unlimited throughout the airport.

Don't delay buying a physical sim card upon arrival. Get an Albanian data e-sim quickly and easily on the web airalo.com.

Albania is not in the EU and therefore European sim card holders here have to pay full roaming tariffs.

Shops and supermarket

In the arrivals hall, you can buy basic groceries and pre-packed baguettes at the handy Conad mini-market, which is open 24/7.

Otherwise, the choice of shops at the airport is very poor. After security you can use a very small duty free shop, jewellery shops and bookstores.

Restaurants

There are a limited number of restaurants at the airport. Prices are significantly higher than normal in the city.

The exception is the KFC branch, which you will find right by the main airport exit, where prices are the same as everywhere else. Many of the restaurants, including KFC, are open 24 hours a day.

After security check there are 3 cafes, one restaurant in the public area and just KFC. A list of all dining options can be found on the airport website.

Luggage storage

There is no luggage storage at Tirana Airport.

ATMs and currency exchange offices
