Adana AirportAdana Şakirpaşa Airport is rather small and deals with flights scheduled in close proximity creating rush hour circumstances. The only way to handle your arrival or departure is to go with the flow of the chaos. Since airport staff deal with mainly locals the etiquette generally associated with international travel don't always apply. So you may find that there is a lot of cutting in lines and rushing around through security with a limited amount of English being spoken - so it helps to know a few key words and phrases in Turkish. On arrival taxis are available to take you to your destination. The airport is only a few miles away from the downtown area so taxi fare is reasonable. There is no set protocol on tipping the driver but if you find his service commendable then a 5YTL tip is acceptable. A recommended taxi service to contact is Gate Taxi at +90.322.316.TAXI as they will speak better English than the regular airport taxi drivers. Upon arrival find a phone in the terminal and just dial 322.316.TAXI. Taxi services from your hotel can take you easily to the airport. Check with your hotel and see if they provide a transportation since it can be more cost effective. Even though the airport is rather small there a few cafes on the upper level. They are local kebab cafeteria kiosks that offer tasty turkish food at a reasonable price.

Adana AirportOther modes of travel to Adana can be found but are time consuming. Reliable train service operates between Istanbul's Haydarpasa train station (on the Asian side) and Adana. There is one departure daily at 11:50pm. It takes about 19 hours. Cost of a one-way ticket is about $16. The Adana to Istanbul train departs daily from Adana at 2:10pm. The trains are clean, comfortable, air-conditioned and usually have a dining car. We suggest that you purchase tickets directly at Haydarpaşa station in Istanbul or the Adana station - or have a travel agent get the tickets for you. You can also make reservations by phone - but they only speak Turkish. Phone: 322 453 6914. Another way of getting to Adana from Istanbul is to take a motorcoach bus. It will take weeks if not years to get there (so it seems) but it is inexpensive and the buses are clean well maintained and comfortable. There are only two that come highly recommended and they are Varan and the other is Ulusoy Otobus. The buses in Turkey are some of the better public buses you'll find anywhere - they actually have stewards aboard that bring around refreshments and wet washcloths with lemon oil. If you are a bit dodgy about traveling on a bus with no Turkish language skills you can also try Fez Bus which has for many years been closely involved in Turkish and North Cypriot tourism both as a tour operator and travel agent. Only Fez customers and staff are allowed on the Fez buses. Therefore providing extra safety of your luggage and personal effects. Most important you are covered by the Fez Travel TURSAB bond. From the moment you arrive at the airport until the end of your travels they guarantee you a smiling face with an English speaking professional crew who provide you with help along the way.
