Havaş – Airport Bus
The Havaş coach provides the most cost-effective year-round transfer from Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport to and from Çeşme and Alaçatı. The journey schedule time from/to the airport is 1 hour 40 minutes from Çeşme and 1 hour 15 minutes from Alaçatı.
Since the end of 2020, the Çeşme & Alaçatı route merged with the Urla Havaş; the bus from the airport stops only on request in Urla; however, from Çeşme the bus takes the Urla detour every trip, adding 10-15-minutes to the Journey time. We recommend that going to the airport allows a total of 2 hours, in case of heavy traffic.

- Adnan Menderes Airport domestic arrivals in the middle of the drop-off zone (4th lane) between exits A and B, the Kantin and Simpark restaurants. The havaş coach originates from domestic arrivals, and it is advised to collect from this collection point internally through the arrivals terminals; it is a 5-minute walk between international and domestic.
- Adnan Menderes Airport international arrivals at the departure time, the coach drives from to the zone, briefly stopping to collect international passengers at the north end (right side as exiting terminal) in the lane closest to the terminal. The coach normally signals its arrival and calls out for passengers. However, to be sure it is not already full, it is recommended that you have time to take the coach from the domestic terminal.
