The Gaziantep Oğuzeli Airport is about 20 km from the city center. There are direct flights to both domestic and international destinations including those in Germany, the Netherlands, and France. Municipal buses, shuttles operated by HAVAŞ or taxis can be used to get to the city center.

Transportation from the airport to the city center is provided by HAVAŞ shuttles, municipal buses, and taxi options; if you want, you can also opt to rent a car.

HAVAŞ

HAVAŞ shuttle services are one of the easiest ways to get to the city center. Shuttle services are arranged according to flight departure times.
