Here at Fethiye Times, we receive a lot of enquiries asking whether there is a bus service that operates from Fethiye to Dalaman airport.
The answer is yes, there are two great value bus services linking Fethiye with Dalaman Airport.
From Fethiye the services run from the Fethiye bus station (Otogar).
The official airport bus for passengers of Turkish Airlines (THY) and other domestic flights is run by Havaş. Havaş buses are easily identified by the livery.
Anyone can use their service. The bus departures are timed with the arrival of domestic flights. There are flights more or less throughout the day so it is pretty good coverage in the summer season. The service runs all year.
The regional council run a bus between Dalaman Airport and Fethiye every day.
This service is run by Muğla Büyükşehir Belediyesi (Regional Council) and is operated by the Muttaş company. These buses can also be easily identified by the livery as seen in the photograph below.
Travellers will be pleased to learn that the journey will be good value too as fares are less than 20TL each way (prices correct at the time of publication).
Will the Service be Right for You?
That question depends on a number of things. Where you are going to, when will your flight arrive or depart and how many are in your group.
Certainly for singles or couples who are travelling independently, are arriving or departing during the service times and don’t mind taking a dolmuş to their final destination once in Fethiye then this service could be ideal.
However, for families who are staying in a villa off the beaten track a private transfer or car hire are probably still the most practical and best value. So it all depends on travellers circumstances.
Please note all times are subject to change and you should always check with the operator on times.
