Note: Blog updated on 24th Sept 2019 following the collapse of ‘Thomas Cook’ and again on 10th Jan 2020 to include reference to the launch of ‘Freebird’ flights to Antalya & Dalaman.
Below is a list of Airlines that travel directly from the UK to Dalaman (nearest airport to Kalkan – 1hr 40min drive) and Antalya (next nearest airport – 3hr drive). All of these airlines (except Freebird) have Apps that can be easily downloaded onto your phone and can be used to book flights. They are surprisingly straight forward to use and some have sophisticated features (e.g. passport scanning function) making things like online ‘checking-in’ problem free.
Flights from: Heathrow, London Gatwick.
Flights from: Belfast, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, London (Gatwick, Luton & Stanstead), Manchester.
Flights from: Belfast, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds/Bradford, London Stanstead, Manchester, Newcastle.
Flights from: London (Gatwick & Stanstead), Manchester.
Flights from: Dublin.
Flights from: Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester & Stanstead.
Note: These and other Airlines* also offer ‘non-direct’ flights to Dalaman (and other Turkish cities). This can sometimes be a less expensive option, though will inevitably take longer. This option may also be considered if wanting to visit other areas before arriving in Kalkan (e.g. short break in Istanbul).
Flights from (indirect flights only): Dublin, Manchester, London (Gatwick & Heathrow).
