How to Get to Antalya?

Despite its rather young existence as an international resort, Antalya has recently started to expand its transportation system. Hence, its being geologically embraced by the Mediterranean Sea at one side, while still being cuddled by the mountains at the other, enables tourists deciding on this vacation destination to choose between, either romantically cruising here or pragmatically flying from any destination worldwide.


It wouldn't be wrong to assume that Antalya is like a door opening itself to the Turkish Riviera for hundreds of tourists every day. The high capacity International Antalya Airport has to handle an authentic turmoil caused by the tourists worldwide arrived here either to enjoy the unique beauty of this mythological city, former house of Gods and Goddesses, and to set off further yet again to explore neighboring historical places like Kemer, Perge, Aspendos or Olympos. The most handy and reasonably priced way to travel remains the plane. The International Airport in Antalya provides for direct flights and charters that fly vacationers from all over the world. Nevertheless, apart from these, you can always choose to fly via Istanbul, and then take a bus to Antalya city.

Most of the tourists who come here are either from Germany or from Russia, exceeding considerably the number of the other international tourists traveling here. A scientific explanation of this phenomenon might be the fact that the cheapest flights from Europe to Antalya usually depart from Amsterdam, Belgium and Germany.

The Onur Airlines which is a domestic and international Turkish air travel company connecting Antalya to all big cities in Turkey and also international destinations, the Turkish Airlines, Thomas Cook, The Sun Express, or Condor are just a few of the airlines that do cheap flights from and to Europe (UK, Austria, Germany, Switzerland or Italy).

If you are traveling on your own and nobody is meeting you at the airport, you can either choose the quite pricey taxi up to your hotel or anywhere you want, or the Havas airport shuttle bus that will take you to the city centre. On your way back home, you can spare a few more moments to enjoy a fresh drink in one of the airport restaurants or cafe bars, or, to buy your loved one a gift from the airport's duty free shopping centre.
