Airport Shuttle (HAVAS)

The HAVAS Airport Shuttles operate on a regular fixed route to Antalya city center and Intercity Bus Terminal. The shuttles depart in every hour (during day time) front of the Domestic Arrivals.

It takes about 35 minutes to get to the city center.

Private / Shared Shuttle

If you are a group or a family with kids or having lots of luggage with you, than we highly recommend you to take private shuttle transfers for your hotel as they offer a fixed rate, comfortable and safe transfer that include meet-and-greet airport pickups and luggage assistance to your hotel from the airports or vice versa.

The Tram, Public Bus or HAVAS airport shuttles will drop you off at the city center or Intercity Bus Terminal, and you’ll need to take a taxi or buses from there again to get to your hotel which will harder for you with your kids and luggage. But private transfers drives you just to the entrance of your hotel.

As for private shuttle transfers to Antalya region, we highly recommend KiwiTaxi as we recently tested them and had a great trip to our hotel. It offers low-priced, fixed rate private shuttles that include meet-and-greet airport pickups and luggage assistance.

Their large selection of comfortable taxis, minivans, luxurious cars and 6-19+ passenger minibuses can match any need while ensuring quick and safe travels to and from Antalya airport (AYT). They met us inside the airport, helped with our luggage, brought us in front of the hotel and there also helped us with our luggage.

It is so easy to make a booking: you just choose a vehicle, specify time and place of departure and destination. The driver will meet you, help with baggage and take you to the agreed address.

Faster and more comfortable than shuttles, buses and taxis. Free cancellation. All prices include fees & tip.
