Antalya Airport Reviews

Antalya Airport (IATA: AYT, ICAO: LTAI) is 13 km (8.1 mi) northeast[1] of the city center of Antalya, Turkey. The airport is operated in Turkey’s primary holiday destination located on the country’s Mediterranean coast.

The Antalya Airport was built to accommodate the millions of passengers who come to Turkey’s Mediterranean beaches in summer. It handled 25 million passengers in 2011, more than 20 million of which were international passengers. The airport has two international terminals and one domestic terminal. Based on the projection from data from peak months (e.g. August 2009), it currently has an estimated capacity of accommodating up to 35 million passengers/year, theoretically. The opening of Alanya Gazipaşa Airport between Anamur and Alanya, which is about 100 km (62 mi) to the east of AYT, might ease the airport’s traffic in the future.

Antalya Airport is one of the major airports on the Southwest of Turkey, the others being Bodrum and Dalaman.

In July 2011 the airport was selected “Best Airport in Europe” (10-25 million passenger category) by Airports Council International (ACI).
