Officially named “Milas-Bodrum Airport”, one of the busiest airports of the Aegean Region in Turkey, was opened to international traffic in 1997. It is located between the two important cities of ancient Caria named Milas (Milassos) and Bodrum (Halicarnassus) within the province of Muğla city.Having derived its name from the vast historical heritage of the two towns, the airport serves over two million people every year with one international and one domestic terminal. Two important issues were significant in the project design and the construction processes and were discussed for a long period. The first concern was the name which the airport would be given. After long debates the airport has been given both names of the two towns as a solution. Today, Bodrum is a preferred holiday destination with its historical and archaeological values and Milas is a residential area with its prominent cultural heritage and environmental richness.
Most airlines allow passengers to check in online on their website prior to travelling to the airport. You will receive your boarding pass when checking in, allowing you to proceed directly to the security checkpoints if you are only travelling with carry-on luggage.
