Book Charter Flights to Antalya Airport

Taking a private jet to Antalya saves time and offers you ultimate flexibility. The fine sandy beaches and luxury holiday homes located around the metropolis ensure that scores of luxury travellers head to the Turkish Riviera, year after year. Thanks to its VIP Terminal, you can be assured of the greatest level of comfort during your time at Antalya International Airport.

History of Antalya (AYT) Airport

Antalya Airport only had a single domestic terminal up until 1998. By the 1990s, due to the growing popularity of the Turkish Riviera as a tourist destination, the terminal’s capacity was no longer sufficient. Consequently, in 1998 a new terminal opened, dedicated to serving international flights. The domestic terminal was rebuilt in 2009 and now features a VIP area.

By 2003 it was becoming clear that even the new terminal would not offer enough space, as flight traffic had increased by 78 percent since 1998. As passenger numbers peaked, it was decided in 2005 that another international terminal should be built that would double the capacity for foreign visitors. An investment of 86 million dollars to design and build a modern complex was made and the results paid off: in 2011, the Airports Council International of Europe (ACI) voted Antalya Airport the Best Airport in Europe.
