Getting There

By Plane

There are several airports within the region, but Adnan Menderes Airport is the one closest to Kusadasi:

1. Dalaman Airport (DLM) is one the three main airports along the south/southwestern coastline of Turkey, the others being the Bodrum Airport and Antalya Airport. Several dozens of airlines serve well over 100 destinations throughout Turkey, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.

To/from the airport:

  • Car: Getting to the airport by car is easy by just following the D400 motorway and exit towards the south on route 5, which goes to Dalaman and the airport. There are signs to the airport from the motorway. There are about 400 short-term and 400 long-term parking places, taxis and car rental facilities available at the airport. Avis, Budget and Europcar are the best and largest car rental companies.
  • Bus: Havas operates airport buses to and from Marmaris and Fethiye. There are no buses going between the airport and Dalaman town centre or Dalaman's bus station, which is located some distance north of town. To get into town it is necessary to take a taxi. From there buses go to the bus station north of town. Intercity bus services depart from there to other cities and towns in Turkey.

2. Also, Milas-Bodrum Airport (IATA: BJV, ICAO: LTFE) is an important airport and is located 36 km north east of the town of Bodrum, and 16 kilometres south of Milas. Airlines flying into this airport include Corendon Airlines, First Choice, SunExpress, Onur Air, Thomas Cook Airlines and Thomsonfly. Starting in April 2009, EasyJet will provide cheap flights as well.

3. Finally, Adnan Menderes Airport (ADB) is located 18 kilometres from Izmir and although it has less charter flights, it serves some more cities on a regular basis. A few dozens of airlines serve the city, with some main destinations including Istanbul, Tehran, London, Berlin, Cologne, Munich, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, Vienna, Zürich, Ankara, Athens, Frankfurt, Oslo, Stockholm, Paris, Brussels, Dublin and Belfast.

Keep Connected

Internet

Internet cafes can be found everywhere except small rural villages. The cost of an hour use of internet ranges from 1 YTL to 1.5 YTL. Wireless internet is becoming popular in some cafes in big cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir, and at airpots. But in many other places it's still not available, or sometimes at a very high cost.

Phone

See also: International Telephone Calls

Turkey's international country code is 90. Dial 112 for an ambulance anywhere, from any telephone, without a charge. In case of a fire, dial 110; for police, call 155. However, in rural areas there is not a police coverage, so dial 156 for gendarme, a military unit for rural security. All these numbers are free of charge and can be called from a telephone booth without inserting a calling card, or any phone including cell phones.

There are telephone booths owned by Turk Telekom in major parts of cities. public phones now operate with chip telekom cards which are available in 30, 60 or 120 units and can be obtained at post offices, newspaper and tobacco kiosks.
It is estimated that approximately 98% of the population of Turkey lives within the coverage areas of Turkey’s three cell phone line providers. Line providers from most countries have roaming agreements with one or more of these companies. Pre-paid mobile phone SIM cards can be purchased for approximately TRY20-50. These can be purchased at the airport on arrival or from the many outlets in Istanbul and other large cities. Providers include Vodaphone.

Post

PTT is the national post service in Turkey. Services are generally moderately fast but quite reliable. There is an extended price list on the PTT website, where you can see the costs of sending items within Turkey, countries in Europe and further afield. For sending packages one might also use international companies such as DHL and UPS and local companies such as Yurtici Kargo. Post offices bear the distinctive yellow PTT sign and are generally open between 9:00am to 12:00 noon and 1:30pm to 5:00pm from Monday to Friday. Some might keep longer hours or be open during the weekend as well, but this mainly applies to the larger ones or those in central places and tourist areas.
