AYT Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Antalya International Airport.

What to Expect

Antalya Airport (code: AYT) serves its passengers via three terminals (Terminals 1 and 2 for international travel and the Domestic Terminal). The airport facilities are modern and offer passengers plenty of options for shopping and dining, with some services open 24 hours. WiFi is available to help pass the time. Economy class passengers may access one of the airport’s private lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below.

Sleeping in Antalya Airport

antalya airport airprot guideAfter security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to the landside and will have to re-clear security upon the concourse gate area re-opening. Overnight sleepers report feeling safe in the airport and suggest that comfortable seating can be found, with Terminal 1 and the Domestic Terminal being cited as most conducive to sleep. Sleep hindrances include noise, light and chilly temperatures, so consider earplugs/noise-cancelling headphones, eyeshades, and a sweater or travel blanket. As armrest-free padded seating may be limited, a travel mat or sleeping bag may help for floor sleeping. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the guide below or read traveller airport reviews for more tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
