| A serious warning to everyone who is arriving to AYT Antalya Airport (operated by ICF Airports) from Istanbul. If you have changed the plane from an international connection to a domestic connection (very usual for TK passengers who can check in their baggage to the final destination at the origin departure airport). Your baggage will be delivered straight to the domestic flight at Istanbul Atatürk Airport so it is convenient you don't need to pick up your luggage at IST and check it again at the domestic terminal - as the walking distance between INT and DOM terminal is about 10 minutes. But when you arrive to AYT airport and you are directed to the domestic terminal baggage claim hall you won't find your luggage there! Last time (last month) I finally found my luggage at INT terminal baggage claim hall - and it is in the other terminal, about 3 km from DOM terminal. The only possibly way to reach the the other terminal is to get a taxi. Prepare for another security check before you can enter the terminal and for a passport and a flight ticket/boarding pass check before you can enter the baggage claim hall. For me it took about 20 minutes together for a taxi ride and the formalities before I could reach my luggage. It is unbelievable if you arrive on a DOM flight you have to pick up your luggage at the INT terminal. I've never heard anything this crazy and illogical. And last but not the least, there is no information available about this preposterous handling of luggage before you arrive at AYT airport and finally can find someone to explain to you how and where you might get and find your luggage.
