How to Arrive
Fly to DALAMAN (IATA: DLM, ICAO: LTBS) international airport. It has two terminals. The old terminal is used for domestic flights and the new terminal is for international flights.
Turkey and many european countries have already confirmed the reestablishment of many of the usual seasonal flight routes in the months of July, August and September. Some of these are already available right now and more will become available throughout June, in some case at better prices in comparison with January. Flights are available to and from over 120 destinations, across the rest of Turkey, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
There are several cities already with direct flights to Dalaman his summer - if your city does not have a direct connection, then the best alternative is to fly to Dalaman with a stopover in Istanbul. In this case, make sure you do not have to change airport in Istanbul (the two airports are too far away). Other option is to fly to another city with direct flights to Dalaman (e.g. London, Munich, Vienna, etc.)
Closer to the dates of the event, we will request to the confirmed participants their inbound flight details, so that we can help with the transfer arrangements from the airport to the marina.
