(more commonly known simply as Bodrum Airport) is situated on a peninsula which juts out from the southwest coast of Turkey
into the Aegean Sea. The Greek island of Kos is a few kilometres away, across a narrow strait. Once the home of Herodotus, Bodrum
is known today as a beautiful and popular resort area. The airport is situated 36kms northeast of the town of Bodrum, and 16kms south of Milas
. A spacious new international terminal was completed in 2000. The old terminal, now reserved for domestic flights, is 1km away, a 15-minute walk across a grassy field. The terminals host about 2.5 million travellers per year, and are especially busy during the peak summer tourism months when charter flights arrive frequently from major cities in Europe.
