Antalya Airport (AYT), also known as Antalya-Turkish Riviera Airport, is the largest airport in the southern Turkish Rivieran region and the fourth busiest airport in Turkey. It opened in 1974, and in 2010, added the stunning new terminal – T3. Most of the flights now depart from here and the airport has flight connections to over 60 countries worldwide.
Antalya Airport receives an average of 13 million passengers each year, and almost 85 per cent of all Turkish Riviera international traffic. The reason this airport is so successful is its close proximity to the famous hot spots of the Turkish Riviera. It’s approximately 25 minutes to Antalya city centre from the airport, and tourist destinations, including Antalya, Bogazkent, Side and Alanya, are all within easy reach.
Antalya Airport is busy all year round. The spring-summer season starts in April, with the traditional Semana Santa – there’s a strong Easter tradition in Antalya – and ends in late October. July and August are the busiest months at the airport, in terms of number of passengers, as the kids break up from school and families take their holidays.
