The new airport Gazipasa, Alanya airport opened up in 2012 and is based near Alanya, Antalya. It is a large investment by the Turkish government to relieve some of the pressure from tourist traffic through the main Antalya airport.
As of March 2011, a taxi ride between the airport and the city centre will set you back € 18 (38 TL ) during the day. You can also prefer transfer companies  in order to avoid any scam. Other, more wallet-friendly options for the airport transportation include: Havaş buses can be used which are less expensive but more frequent, and they are departing on the hour from "Güllük PTT" (10 TL). There are public buses from the airport (line 600, "Terminal-Otogar") which leave on the half hour and cost 4 TL [as of January 2016]. You need to purchase a contactless payment card at the bus driver, which costs 5 TL, so expect to pay 10 TL at the bus driver [as of March 2016]. To catch the public bus from the International Terminal you have to go to the domestic terminal (300m, just turn right when you leave the International Terminal), there is a small blue "D" sign next to a larger ficus tree. The blue "D" sign next to the taxi stand in front of the International Terminal won't get you anywhere; waiting there usually attracts taxi drivers (telling you truthfully: "There is no bus leaving here!") offering a ride.
Antray tram leave from outside Terminals 2 and 3 to the Otogar via the city center and old town about every 20 minutes. Travel time is about 30 minutes. Tickets cost 2 TL.
The terminal is separated in two buildings. The larger building obviously houses the long distance bus routes, and the smaller building to the left (west) serves for shorter distance routes including Serik, Manavgat, Side, and Fethiye.
Fares are low. Simply show up at the bus station (“otogar”) and announce your destination. From most cities, there are an overnight bus options (with Antalya ). There are regular buses destined for Antalya that run along the coastal roads and stop at tourist towns such as Kas and Fethiye.
The Pamukkale Express is NOT operating as of April 2009 and it is unclear when or IF it will resume service.
