Cars and Taxis
The airport is located close to the centre of Antalya, meaning that catching a taxi or driving oneself into the city are both equally good options. Take the D400 from the airport to the eastern periphery of the city. Turn onto the Aspendos Boulevard to reach the heart of Antalya. Of note, taxis are available 24 hours and operate from all terminals.
Buses are cheaper than taxis and run between 06:10 and 01:10 every day. These regular buses generally take about 20 minutes to reach downtown Antalya, while select airlines provide buses for passengers. Havas, a popular coach service to the city, runs via the D400 and leaves from the Domestic Terminal.
