Antakya's new airport terminal

Antakya /Hatay airport was just opened in 2008 with one terminal and a couple of flights a week to istanbul.
Since then its really took off (no pun)
Yesterday a second terminal was opened as the airport has become really busy.
This area is now opening out both to tourism and business with Syria and the rest of the Middle East.

At the moment there are no direct flights from Antlaya to Hatay..you have to go to İstanbul or Ankara...even so it still knocks hours off the 12 hours by road journey for us from Alanya..and hopefully there will soon be direct flights.

Hatay is a great place to visit..its unique in Turkey with a mix of Turks Kurds Arabs Alevi to name a few. Arabic is more widely spoken than Turkish in many parts of town.
Antakyans are also very gregarious and hospitable..so if you fancy a change..give it a go.

Re: Antakya's new airport terminal

hi Nadine..you would really like it there. this is one of the most cosmopolitan towns in Turkey...very old and ultra modern rubbing along together.
