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 Antalya International Airport.

What to Expect

Antalya International Airport serves it 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 be able to access one of the airport’s private lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

After security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to the landside, and will have to re-clear security upon 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 being most conducive to sleep. Sleep hindrances noted 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 airport guide below.

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.
