Transport for Amasya, Turkey

Bus and car are the best ways to get to Amasya (map). The nearest airport is the small Merzifon-Amasya Airport. The daily train from Samsun is slow and less comfortable than the bus.

Bus

Mis Amasya Tur and other companies operate several buses daily from Istanbul (10 hours) and twice as many buses from Ankara (5 to 6 hours) to Amasya.

Plane

Turkish AirlinesAnadoluJet and Pegasus operate flights between Merzifon-Amasya Airport (MZH) and Istanbul and Ankara. The airport is 6 km east of Merzifon, and 41 km northwest of Amasya. There’s a larger, busier airport at Samsun.

Train

A regional “express” makes the 3-hour trip between Amasya and Samsun daily, departing Amasya at 04:55 am and returning from Samsun departing at 18:00 (6 pm), making 17 stops along the way.
