Regional Airports – Bodrum
Along with Izmir and Dalaman, Bodrum’s airport is one of the three major airports that you can use when coming to Turkey’s Aegean Coast for a holiday. As all three are spread out it means the transfer time from the airport to your hotel or apartment should never be too long.
Most holidaymakers know this as simply Bodrum Airport, though the official name is Milas Bodrum Airport because it is situated in between these two towns. Bodrum is about 20 miles (36km) to the south east of Bodrum Airport.
