Antalya International Airport

Antalya's busy international airport is 10km east of the city centre on the D400 highway. In the arrivals hall there's a tourist information desk, and a number of car-hire agency counters.

Low-cost carriers operate plentiful direct flights to European cities as well as Middle Eastern destinations Amman and Tel Aviv during the summer months.

Turkish Airlines (www.turkishairlines.com) and Pegasus Airlines (www.flypgs.com) both operate extensive domestic networks from Antalya, serving several Turkish cities including several daily flights to/from İstanbul. For Cappadocia, Sun Express (www.sunexpress.com) offer regular flights to/from Kayseri.

Transport Options

Antalya's AntRay tram extended to the airport in 2017 making this the simplest way to travel between the airport and the centre of town. From the airport (Havalimanı) tram stop it's 12 stops (around 40 minutes) to İsmet Paşa tram stop, the closest stop to Kaleiçi.

Antalyakarts (rechargeble transport cards) are available for purchase at the airport tram stop.

A taxi will cost ₺40 to ₺50.

There is also an hourly Havaş shuttle, which runs from the 5M Migros shopping centre near Konyaaltı Plajı (about 45 minutes). Coming into the city, it meets every domestic flight and stops at the otogar (bus station) before following the ring road to 5M Migros.

Bus

Antalya's otogar, about 4km north of the city centre, just off highway D650, consists of two large terminals fronted by a park. Looking at the otogar from the main highway or its parking lot, the Şehirlerarası Terminalı (Intercity Terminal), which serves long-distance destinations, is on the right. The Ilçeler Terminali (Domestic Terminal), serving nearby destinations such as Side and Alanya, is on the left.

Transport Options

The AntRay tram is the quickest way into town. Follow the signs from the bus station to the underpass which brings you to Otogar tram stop. Note that the underpass is long and dimly lit at night.

You will have to buy an Antalyakart (rechargeable transport card) at the tram-stop ticket office. It's a 20-minute ride (eight stops) to the central İsmet Paşa stop just outside Kaleiçi.

Bus 40 heads for Atatürk Caddesi in the town centre every 20 minutes or so from the bus shelter near the airport taxi stand and takes about an hour. To the otogar from Kaleiçi, dolmuşes and buses, including 93, head up Fahrettin Altay/Cebesoy Caddesi; look out for 'otogar' or 'terminal' on the front of the vehicle.

A taxi between the otogar and Kaleiçi should cost ₺25 and will take between 20 and 25 minutes.

Car & Motorcycle

There are plenty of car-rental agencies. International companies such as Avis have their offices at the airport. Most accommodation places can also arrange rental.
