The airport is located in the northeast of Antalya, 12 kilometers from the historical center of the city - the old town of Kaleichi.

The airport has three terminals: two international (terminal 1 and terminal 2) and domestic (terminal 3), located in the same building as terminal 1. International terminal 1 and domestic terminal 3 have separate entrances and are interconnected .

The distance between Terminals 1 and 2 is approximately 2.5 kilometers, you can walk, get there by public buses or taxis.

Antalya Airport has all the necessary infrastructure: shops, cafes and restaurants, information desks, health offices, restrooms, children's rooms, places to relax and wait for flights, lost and found, facilities for people with disabilities, free Wi-Fi, smoking areas, ATMs, currency exchange offices, duty-free zones and parking.

The exchange rate at the airport is usually less favorable than in the city center, so we recommend exchanging small amounts of money at the airport.

How to get from Antalya Airport to Antalya city center (from Antalya city center to airport)

If you arrived in Antalya with a tour operator (on a tourist voucher), then your voucher most likely already includes a transfer from the airport to the hotels and back, and your tour operator will take you to the hotel.

Upon arrival, you will meet with your tour operator at the reception desk, which are located on the streets next to the terminals and specify where to go and which bus to take you to your destination.

If you arrived in Antalya on your own, then you can get from Antalya airport to the center of Antalya, as well as from the center to the airport, by taxi / transfer, rented car, shuttle bus and public transport (tram, buses).

Taxi / Transfers

Getting from Antalya airport to the center of Antalya is most convenient and fastest by taxi. You can order a taxi in advance, even from home. At any time of the day, at the airport, a driver will be waiting for you with a sign where your first and last name will be written. To order a taxi, it is enough to provide your flight data!

One of the most convenient ways to travel independently in Turkey, including the surroundings of Antalya, is by car. You can rent a car in advance, even from home, the car will be waiting for you immediately upon arrival near the airport, or in another place convenient for you in the city.

Antalya Airport is connected to the city center by the D400 road. The journey by car takes about 20 minutes.

When you arrive at the airport from the city, first follows the international Terminal 1, the domestic terminal and the CIP terminal building respectively; then, behind these buildings, is the International Terminal 2 building.

Shuttle buses

Havash shuttle buses (HAVAŞ) run from the domestic terminal (they do not stop in terminal 2) to the center of Antalya - the Migros shopping center (Konyaaltı Migros AVM), which is near Konyaalti Beach and Aktur Amusement Park.

Passengers of international flights can approach the domestic terminal and use the services of shuttle buses.

During the movement, buses make stops, including stopping at the Antalya bus station (Otogar) and stopping near the aquarium.

The travel time by bus is approximately 35 minutes, but may vary depending on the situation on the roads and weather conditions.

Movements time from the Migros shopping center: from 02:00 to 21:00. The interval of movement is 1 time per hour, except for the interval from 02:00 to 04:00 in the morning. Bus supervision hours vary depending on domestic flights, so we recommend checking the timetable immediately before the trip.

The fare is 47 Turkish lira. The fare can be paid in cash to the driver.

In Antalya, trams can have different numbers, so you need to focus not on the number, but on the inscriptions on the trams. It is impossible to confuse the tram at the airport, it is only one there and always T1A. But when traveling from the city center to the airport, you can make a mistake to avoid this by tram, see the inscription "Havalimanı" (which means "airport" in Turkish), since two trams run along almost the same route: T1A - to the airport and T1B, which does not stop at the airport, but goes to the EXPO.
