Gaziantep Transport

Gaziantep is well served by flights, buses and expressways for cars, but train service has mostly been suspended.

Turkish Airlines has daily flights from Istanbul and Ankara to Gaziantep’s Oğuzeli Airport (GZT).

The city center is usually considered to be either the ancient Kale (Fortress), or the intersection of two major streets: Istasyon Caddesi and Atatürk Bulvarı/Suburcu Caddesi (map).

The Intercity Bus Terminal (Gaziantep Şehirlerarası Otobüs Terminali) is 6 km/4 miles northeast of the Kale/fortress.

The train station (Gar, Istasyon) is 1 km (6/10 mile) northwest of the Kale/fortress.
