Antalya tram being extended to airport and beyond

Post by David Morgan » Sun Jul 24, 2016 1:24 pm

I was recently on Aspendos Bulvarı and the D400 and I noticed the tram line now goes way out of Antalya, into the airport and out to Aksu and EXPO 2016.

I'm not sure that it's running all the way yet. There's a timetable on this airport website.

EDIT: It seems that it's now running to the airport from 24/7/16:
"Önemli:Antalya Havalimanı Tramvay hattı 24.07.2016 tarihi itibari ile çalışmaya tekrar başlamıştır.
Antalya Expo Tramvay Hattı Çalışmaya devam etmektedir."

Here's a map of the tramway.

Good for visiting Perge - just 15mins' walk from the Aksu tram stop.

Amazing! They finally got it done.

I remember those taxi fares from the airport: surprisingly expensive.

Thanks, David! I've revised the Antalya Trams page and related pages:

I've never minded the approx. 50TL taxi fare from the airport to Kaleiçi, at about 3TL per km. Have you been spoilt by İstanbul's 2TL per km?
My advice is not to take a taxi in Kalkan where it's 6TL per km.
