How to Get There
Getting to Turkey from London usually takes around four hours, but with six different airlines to choose from, you can consider your personal needs and find the best way to fly. Once you have flown into Antalya Airport, I would recommend a Shuttle Direct Transfer to Avsallar. The journey takes around one and a half hours, but I have always found that the drivers are extremely reliable, so the journey can begin as soon as you are out of the airport.
Every driver from Shuttle Direct that I have met has been friendly, informative and understanding of any personal requirements. They will do everything they can to make your journey a safe and enjoyable one.
