Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us about their time at Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport.

What to Expect

Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport consists of a modern international terminal and even newer (2014) domestic terminal, with both offering a wide variety of shops and eateries, and some offering 24-hour service. Some reviewers found the shops and restaurants pricey, so consider bringing your own food and beverages to the airport. WiFi is available, though power outlets are reportedly hard to find. Comfort can be found through fee-based access to one of the airport’s first class lounges located in both terminals. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

Travellers report that airport staff are friendly and accommodating to overnight sleepers, and that comfortable sleeping spots and seating can be found in both terminals. Noise and bright lights were mentioned as sleep hindrances, so consider bringing earplugs/noise-cancelling earphones and eyeshade if you are intending to spend the night at the airport. For uninterrupted sleep, there is a hotel in the International terminal and other hotels nearby. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
