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.
