Get in

By air

The international Dalaman Airport (IATA: DLM; ) is situated about 6 km south of Dalaman town center, and is the nearest airport for destinations such as Marmaris, Dalyan, Fethiye, Kaş and their vicinity. Daily flights connect with Istanbul, while direct flights (both scheduled and charter) to and from major European cities occur several times weekly. At present there are two passenger terminals — one for international flights and one for domestic — which handle a total of 2.5 million passengers each year. The terminals are 200 meters apart and are connected by walkways. A new, much larger international terminal is built with the old one is employed by domestic flights now. This will presumably reduce the often-lengthy time presently spent waiting in queues.

Beware the captive-market food and drink pricing: 4 euro for a Coke, 3 euro for a small bottle of water, 12 euro for a Big Mac meal (more expensive even than Haifa), 4 euro for a packet of crisps.

Dalaman Airport is one of the busiest airports in Western Mediterranean/Southern Aegean regions of Turkey. Various companies based at the airport will be able to provide you with an airport transfer to your destination.

The airport is 6km from the city of Dalaman and it is possible to walk from the bus station to the airport if you are fit. The walk is flat and takes about 1 hour.

By car

The highway D400, the major road of Mediterranean coast, passes by the town centre about 1 km to east and connects it with destinations south (Fethiye) and north (Marmaris and onward to Muğla).
