What to Expect

Bodrum Airport (code: BJV) has two small, modern terminals divided by domestic and international destinations. Security queues can be slow, so arrive early for peace of mind. Facilities include a few eateries and shops, but these may be expensive, so bring snacks if you want to save money. WiFi is available in two airport lounges, which economy class passengers can pay to enter. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for locations and rates.

Sleeping in Bodrum Airport

The Domestic Arrivals terminal is small and has limited seating, so you should expect to sleep on the floor. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info, or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

SIM Cards – A reader says, “I bought a Turkcell SIM card for my time in Turkey at Bodrum airport on arrival from an international flight. The SIM card never worked. When I took it to a branch of Turkcell they said that each branch was separate and that they could not help me with the sim card and did not offer to refund or replace it. My advice would be to wait until you reach civilisation and purchase one from a shop where you can return it in case of any issues.” (July 2023)
