Air

İzmir's Adnan Menderes Airport is the closest airport, and is serviced by many domestic and international airlines.

Transport Options

There are a number of options for getting to or from İzmir Adnan Menderes Airport.

Shuttle Havaş runs a shuttle bus to/from Kuşadası (₺26, 13 daily) that stops in front of Selçuk's hospital en route; this leaves the airport between 1.30am and 11pm daily.

Taxi Expect to pay around ₺130.

Train The simplest and cheapest public-transport option to the airport is the 90-minute train journey (₺6.50). There are eight daily departures but as services are not punctual, you should aim to catch a train leaving Selçuk at least two hours before you are due to check in. Passengers are not assigned a seat and you may have to stand. Also note that the train’s airport stop is a 15- to 20-minute walk from the departures terminal.
