The Aegean Free Zone is located close to the EU and the Middle Eastern markets, near major ports, international airports, highway networks and at the heart of culture, tourism and entertainment centers. It is 4 km to Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport, and 12 km to the Port of Izmir and the Izmir city center.
Izmir has great advantages in terms of national and international sea and air transportation. Alsancak, Aliağa-Nemrut, Dikili and Çeşme ports are key locations for sea transport. The Port of Çandarlı, which is still under construction and is expected to be one of the 10 largest ports in the world, will be another point of connection enhancing the potential of Izmir.
