Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport is just 18km (11 miles) from central Izmir. The airport is relatively new – the International Terminal was completed in 2006.
Izmir’s airport has a modest but varied selection of shops and dining options, useful for passengers who may endure notoriously long check-in times during peak travel times.
Cheap flights are usually available on IZair, SunExpress and Onur Air, which all use the airport as a regional hub. There are also a number of charter companies offering flights to Izmir Airport as well as some low-cost carriers.
Izmir Airport is the perfect gateway to the Gulf of Izmir on Turkey’s Aegean coast. The coast is home to a number of popular resorts and holiday attractions and Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport is a great way to get to the coast without having to deal with the hustle and bustle of flying through Istanbul.
