    Shifa is about half an hour away from the airport. You can get there easily by taking either a taxi or a Radio Cab. Personally from the airport I'd recommend taking a radio cab, if you have luggage with you. Radio cabs are a little more expensive than taxis but they're larger(and faster and cleaner!) therefore you won't need to be tying luggage on to the roof of the car. The fare will probably be about 400 rupees to get to Shifa. Radio cab prices are fixed so don't bother trying to haggle over the price.

    Once you walk out of the airport, turn right and the radio cab stand will be the second one on the left(i think they changed their name so the sign says metro cab or something like that but either way it's still the second cab stand on the left). Hope that helps!
