Adana, which is the largest city in Mediterranean and Eastern Anatolia regions, is the Turkey’s fifth largest city that is connected to the world through Şakirpaşa Airport, which is located in Seyhan district. It is very easy to get to the airport which is 5km away from Yüreğir district, Kayalıbağ and Reşatbey neighborhoods which are accepted as the city center.
You can reach the airport from the city center by bus number 135, which runs hourly between 6 am and 7 pm every day from the airport and Çukurova University points. You can get on the bus through the Turhan Cemal Beriker Boulevard in the city center as well as you can do so by transferring through the city’s only metro line ‘Akıncılar-Hospital’.
In order to arrive at the airport, you can also use the minibus option, which is the more commonly used vehicle in the transportation from the airport to the city center. You can get to Şakirpaşa Airport from the city center by using the City Center minibus line passing through the boulevards of Girne and Turhan Cemil Beriker in the city center.
You will reach Barış Boulevard about 3 kilometers later if you drive through Turhan Cemil Beriker Boulevard. The Barış Boulevard will directly take you to the airport. It takes about 10 minutes to reach the airport from the city center by your own car.
Taxi is one of the fastest and most economical ways to get to the airport from the city center. You can reach the airport at an affordable price by taxi from the many parts of Adana, though it is not as cheap as taking a bus.
Sakirpaşa Airport is also open to international flights; the International Terminal, which has a capacity of 6 million passengers, came into service in 1997 and the Domestic Terminal came into service in 1984. Despite the potential of the passengers, the airport offers limited facilities to spend time.
For the passengers who use the international terminal, there are two restaurants and two buffets, one of which is in the clean area as well as a duty-free shop. There is a buffet in the domestic terminal and a café in the clean area. Besides, you can enjoy the famous tastes of Adana by leaving the airport, which is 4.5 kilometers away from the city center or you can spend your time in the city before going to the airport.Last Updated: 21 Dec 2016
Since there is no public transportation vehicle that departs from Koca Seyit Airport and goes directly to the city center, you can take the private transportation vehicles passing through Edremit, Burhaniye and Ayvalık districts to transfer to the city center. Another transportation option is the shuttle services provided by the tour companies located at the airport. You can reach directly to the city center taking the advantage of these services.
Taxi is among the options you can prefer to reach the city center; having said that, taking a taxi is advisable if you are at the Central Airport. Because, it is 90km from Koca Seyit Airport to the city center and taking a taxi can cost a pretty penny. There are also special services provided by some tour companies at the airport. These include the services such as private taxi, minibus rental and etc.
Renting a car is one of the most preferred options. Balıkesir is a city coming into prominence with its history, culture and natural beauties. For this reason, we can say that there are many places to visit almost everywhere.
You can rent a car to enjoy the city and you can have a great time with your loved ones. You can choose between car rental offices at the airport if you wish, or you can save time by booking your car through internet in advance.Last Updated: 20 Dec 2016
