El Edén International Airport is situated 9.5 miles away from Armenia — the capital of Colombia’s Quindío Department famous for its coffee culture. So, if you’re a coffee-lover, Colombia must be on your travel list. AXM has regular flights to Bogotá, Medellín, and Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
Travelers searching for a low-cost airport transfer have several transportation options. The safest and simplest way to reach your accommodation is to book one with an airport shuttle service — this will also minimize your costs. Many hotels, hostels, and private apartments provide airport transfers at a reasonable price or entirely free. Armenia hotels with free shuttle service located near AXM Airport are Hotel Acawa Suites and El Triangulo. Other great accommodation options with El Eden shuttle services are Casa De Verano and Hostal Los Juanes.
Right outside AXM, you'll find a white bus with a pink stripe near the "Tinto" stop. This is a great option for those looking to venture away from the airport, as it'll take you to either downtown or the bus station in 15-20 minutes and cost less than $2. If you're heading to Salento, this is a great deal as the shuttle will drop you off at the transfer center and you can then hop on another bus that'll take you there in around an hour at a reasonable price.
El Eden Airport also provides a taxi service, which is a quite good substitute for Armenia Airport shuttle. Taxi cabs aren’t too expensive and offer smooth and quick airport transfers to any place in the area. A taxi ride from AXM to the city costs around $28,000, which is less than 8 USD.
Finally, you can rent a vehicle and easily arrange your day according to your plans and needs. A rental car is a convenient option that allows you to explore the city and check out the city tourist attractions.
