Dalaman International Airport
Located just outside Dalaman in southwest Turkey, Dalaman International Airport is a good point of entry for tourists heading to the sunny resorts along the Turkish Riviera.
The facility is new and modern, with a domestic and international terminal offering flights to more than 120 destinations in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. Facilities include good entertainment for kids with baby-care rooms and an arcade. However, passengers may want to bring some snacks to eat while they wait in the terminal, as the fast-food outlets crowding the food court are notoriously overpriced.
The airport is situated about four miles (6km) from Dalaman.
