Dalaman Airport (IATA: DLM, ICAO: LTBS) is an international airport and one of three serving south-west Turkey, the others being Milas-Bodrum Airport and Antalya Airport. It has two terminals. The old terminal is used for domestic flights and the new terminal is for international flights. The airport serves the surrounding tourist areas and environs of Dalaman. Flights are available to and from over 120 destinations, across the rest of Turkey, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
The new Dalaman International Terminal cost approximately $150,000,000 to complete and is the 3rd largest terminal building in Turkey. There are 12 boarding gates, 8 with covered airbridges. The apron was also re-designed, increasing space for remote stands. Consequently, the airport has capacity to handle up to 35 flights at any one time. In total, the terminal now a floor space of 95,000m2, compared with less than 45,000m2 prior to refurbishment.
Check-in and departures are based on the upper two levels, with arrivals using the lower two levels.
Parking facilities are available for up to 550 vehicles outside the terminal building.
The old Terminal is still in use operated as the domestic terminal. There are daily flights to Ankara, and both Istanbul Airports.
Public transport to and from the airport is limited to infrequent buses for Marmaris and Fethiye. Primary means of transport to and from the airport is taking a taxi. Although taxies run on predefined tariff, they are not cheap. E.g. for a 6 km ride between the airport and the Dalaman town, they are able to charge 25TL, in the absence of any public transport.
ATM Dalaman International Terminal has been awarded the ISO 9001 Quality Certificate, the ISO 14001 Environment Certificate, the TS 13001 HACCP Food Safety Certificate and the OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Certificate. The airport has also received praise for its environmentally conscious design, especially the use of natural lighting in its main hall.
