About Izmir

With a population of approximately 3.6 million, Izmir is Turkey’s 3rd most populous city. It is an important port and industrial base as well as a popular touristic destination with districts such as Çeşme, Selçuk and Foça. The city also hosts the Izmir International Fair, one of the most established in Turkey.
 
Izmir has a temperate climate characterized by hot and dry summers, and mild and rainy winters. There is a subway network that connects the airport to some parts of the town. The subway line starts from Aliağa, runs through the Airport, and extends all the way to Torbalı. The towns of Çeşme and Alaçatı enjoy increased popularity owing to the newly built Çeşme motorway. Alaçatı also hosts international surfing events and competitions.
 
Major attractions in the Izmir city center include the Clock Tower, Asansör (the cliff-face elevator), Kordon (the Waterfront Promenade), and Kültür Park (the inner city park). For the history enthusiast, the city boasts an important cultural heritage with highlights such as the Ancient City of Ephesus and the House of the Virgin Mary near the village of Selçuk. 
 
 

Transportation to Izmir City Center from Airport

You can get to the city center from Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport, which is located in the Gaziemir district 18 km away, by Havas shuttles, public buses, train, taxi or personal car. You can also rent a car at the airport.

Personal Car

If you are going to drive to the city center from Adnan Menderes Airport using your personal car, you can get to central locations like Alsancak and Konak in about 30 minutes.

Havaş

Havaş shuttles are a good choice to reach the city center. Havaş shuttles provide high frequency transportation to the city starting in the early morning and continue until late at night. You can reach many locations both in the city and outside the city, like Alsancak, Karsiyaka, Kusadasi, and Aydin, using Havaş shuttles.

In addition, from March-October Havaş shuttles provide transportation to and from Çeşme.

Taxi

You can get to your destination quickly by taking a taxi. Taxis are located right outside the terminal. However, if you’re going somewhere outside of the city like Çeşme taking a taxi can be very expensive. We would recommend finding out the distance to your destination and calculating the fare before hand.

Public buses are another alternative to get to the city center. Using line 200 you can get to Mavisehir, using line 202 you can get to Alsancak and its surrounding areas, and using line 204 you can get to Bornova and its surrounding areas. Before getting on the bus purchase a Kentkart (smart card for fare payment), which is valid for the metro and train as well.

Rental Cars

Renting a car to get around in Izmir is a good idea, especially if you plan to spend a few days in the city and/or travel to the surrounding areas. You can reserve your vehicle in advance and pick it up from the car rental office located at the airport. You can return your vehicle at the airport rental office a few hours before your departure. In Izmir traffic is generally mild, with the exception of rush hour, which is another reason why renting a car can be more advantageous. Rental car agencies at the airport include Avis, Hertz, Işıl Tur, Sun Rent a Car, and Duray Rent a Car.
