İncirlik (Turkish pronunciation: [indʒiɾˈlik]) is a quarter in the Yüreğir district of the city of Adana, 8 km (5 mi) east of the downtown.


Incirlik municipality was founded in 1971 and incorporated into Yüreğir Municipality in 2008. Since 2008, İncirlik is divided into four neighbourhoods and each neighbourhood is administered by the Muhtar and the Seniors Council. The neighborhoods of İncirlik are Cumhuriyet (pop. 1914), Hürriyet, Kemalpaşa and Yeni Mahalle.


İncirlik economy is mainly on agriculture and manufacturing.

The major institution in İncirlik is NATO's Incirlik Air Base from which American aircraft patrolled Iraq's northern No-Fly Zone between the 1991 Persian Gulf War and the 2003 invasion of Iraq.


İncirlik railway station, opened in 1912, is currently served by two regional lines and one long-distance line.

Adana Metropolitan Municipality Bus Department (ABBO) has bus routes from downtown Adana to İncirlik. İncirlik Minibus Co-operative also conducts local transport from downtown.
