İzmir Adnan Menderes International Airport (IATA: ADBICAO: LTBJ) is an airport serving İzmir and is named after former Turkish prime minister Adnan Menderes. It is located in the Gaziemir area of İzmir.[2]

İzmir's main airport is located 18 km (11 mi) southwest[1] of the city on the way to Selçuk, Ephesus and Pamukkale.

The easiest way to get there from İzmir is by İZBAN metropolitan rail service or the Havaş[3] airport shuttle bus (every 20 minutes, 35 to 60 minutes) from the Turkish Airlines office.

Intercity trains operated by the Turkish State Railways stop at the Airport Station. There are currently about 14 daily trains in both directions. Northbound trains all go to Basmane Terminal in the city center, while southbound trains serve Ödemiş, Tire, Söke, Aydın, Nazilli Torbalı and points in between.

Selçuk and Ephesus are 60 km (37 mi) south of ADB, reachable by rental car (less than an hour's drive), or cheap, slow train (six times daily).

Pamukkale is 252 km (157 mi) from ADB, a drive of about 4 hours (4½ to 5 hours by bus).

The new international terminal was opened in September 2006 and the new domestic terminal is opened in March 2014.

ADB served 6,201,794 passengers in the year 2009. 4,534,339 of them were domestic passengers and 1,667,455 of them were international passengers. It ranked 4th (behind Atatürk International Airport (IST), Antalya Airport (AYT) and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (SAW)) in terms of total number of passengers, 6th (behind IST, AYT, Dalaman Airport (DLM), SAW and Milas-Bodrum Airport (BJV)) in terms of international passengers, and 3rd (behind IST and Esenboğa International Airport (ESB)) in terms of domestic passengers among Turkish airports in 2009.[4]
