The Milas—Bodrum Airport (BJV) serves the cities of Bodrum and Milas, and the stunning Turkish coastline that juts out into the Aegean. A popular destination for tourists the world over, travellers looking to explore the Turquoise Coast will likely find themselves flying into this airport.
This airport is a compact one, but in 2000 and 2012 newer domestic and international terminals were finished, able to handle up to five million travellers per year. Currently the airport sees about 2.5 million passengers annually, and there are direct flights to seven destinations in Turkey, the UK, and the Netherlands.
Within the terminals, you will find two executive lounges, one on the international side of the airport and the other on the domestic. You can purchase entry into these lounges, and they provide WiFi if you are looking to connect to the internet.
There aren’t many shopping options here, but visitors will find a duty-free outlet in the international terminal, complete with goods ranging from confectionary, to cosmetics, souvenirs, tobacco, and alcohol. In the domestic terminal you can access a gift shop. There are several eateries where you can sit down and enjoy the local cuisine, or grab something on the go.
There is a small clinic for any health concerns, a post-office, and an information desk for any other needs you may have.
From Australia you will need to connect via other international cities before you reach Bodrum. This will likely require a stop in Asia or the Middle East, and one in Istanbul (IST, SAW). Book your flights with airlines like Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, Thai Airways, Aegean Airlines, atlasglobal, Singapore Airlines, and Qantas.
· To Bodrum, you can hop on the D330 all the way to the city, and it should only take 30-40 minutes to get there. Should you want to go to Milas, you can drive on the D330 in the opposite direction (inland). The drive should take roughly 20 minutes. Skyscanner's search tools can help you locate the best car hire prices on offer from this airport, though if you’d prefer to just wait to book your car when you land, there are several companies that are stationed in this airport.
· There is a shuttle service that is operated by Havaş Shuttles that travel from the airport to Bodrum Bus Terminal, and takes about 45 minutes. If you are travelling in a group, or with children, it might be easier to arrange a private airport transfer as you can compare prices across the different companies and book a great deal in advance.
