Reliable and Convenient Albuquerque Airport Shuttle

Albuquerque International Airport, also known as ABQ Airport, is the primary airport in the state of New Mexico and serves millions of passengers from all around the world annually. If you’re planning a trip to Albuquerque and you’re looking for the fastest and most comfortable way to get to your hotel, then you can pre-book your ABQ Airport shuttle with Welcome Pickups.

By spending only a couple of minutes while planning your trip, you can enhance your travel experience from the moment you land. With Welcome, you’ll get a competitive quote and pay in advance for your personalised door-to-door airport ride, ensuring a fixed rate and helping your stay within budget. Once you arrive at ABQ Airport, instead of waiting in line for a taxi, with Welcome you’ll have a friendly, professional driver, whose photo and contact info will be sent to you in advance; they will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall, holding a sign with your name on it – even if your flight is delayed.

Your driver will then take you to your private vehicle and you can sit back and relax until you reach your hotel or apartment. If you want, you can use this time to ask your driver for tips, the local culture or any must-see attractions; you’d surely have done your research but meeting a local as soon as you land might reveal some lesser-known spots! To enjoy a stress-free travel experience until it’s time to get back to the airport, make sure to also ask your driver to book a return transfer for you with Welcome Pickups before you reach your destination.

What our customers say about Welcome

"Anabelia, our tour guide was wonderful. She guided us through history and food and made great suggestions and enabled us to understand Greek culture and the food. I would highly recommend this tour.”

Getting to Albuquerque City Centre with your ABQ Airport Shuttle

ABQ Airport is about 8 kilometres south of the city centre and taking an Albuquerque Airport taxi will get you downtown in approximately 15 minutes in light traffic. Once you exit the airport parking area, your driver will head south on Yale Blvd SE and stay left to merge onto Sunport Blvd. You will keep following Sunport Blvd and then continue onto Girard Blvd SE until you make a slight left toward Gibson Blvd SE. You will then turn left onto Gibson Blvd SE for about 3 kilometres and use the right two lanes to turn right onto Broadway Blvd SE. After that, you’ll be entering the downtown area and your driver will follow the local roads to reach your hotel or apartment, depending on its precise location.

Why Choose a Welcome Albuquerque Airport Shuttle

ABQ Airport receives millions of travellers every year and they all want the same thing as you; to arrive at their destination as quickly as possible. Instead of being part of the endless line next to the taxi rank, you can easily pre-book your Albuquerque Airport Shuttle in a couple of minutes with Welcome Pickups and enjoy personalised door-to-door service. You’ll have 60 minutes of free waiting time from the moment you land to go through customs or passport checks, while a professional, friendly driver will meet you in the arrivals hall and take you directly to your private vehicle. With Welcome, you can enhance your travel experience and start your trip stress-free, without worrying about currency exchange and cash payments; your transfer will be pre-paid, saving you the trouble of carrying cash but you also get a flexible cancellation policy in case your travel plans change.

Albuquerque Airport Taxi Fares

Taxis in Albuquerque are required by law to use a taximeter for the entire ride. The rates are regulated by the state but aren’t the same for all taxi providers; the total fare is calculated based on the distance driven, the waiting time and other additional fees that may apply among the different companies. A standard ABG Airport shuttle to the downtown Albuquerque area costs an average of $20 (€20) for up to 4 passengers. To ensure a competitive fixed rate and door-to-door, personalised service, you can always pre-book your ABQ Airport taxi with Welcome Pickups.

Your Welcome driver will be waiting for you in the ABQ Airport arrivals hall on the first floor, right after baggage claim. They will be holding a sign with your name on it and you’ll have received an email with their photo and contact info too, so it should be easy to spot them in the crowd.
