Here are some of the advantages of taking a private car transfer:

⇒  Door to door service (No long walks with heavy suitcases)
⇒  In most cases cheaper than taxi
⇒  No waiting at the airport, the driver is there when you arrive, even if your plane is delayed.
⇒  Vehicles available for larger groups as well (you always travel together)

The travel time beween the airport and the centre depends on the chosen type of transport but it is between 20 and 35 minutes. When travelling from the centre to the airport bear in mind that it is not good to take the local bus since it makes several stops along the way so the journey might take longer.
