This is the return leg of my brother's vacations in Antalya. For the return they opted to fly with Corendon since their flight was in the afternoon and avoided an early wake up, never easy when you travel with kids.

No pictures from AYT airport since it was crowded and the little one was a bit demanding. Everything went pretty straight forward as they were travelling as a family, they had more or less priority at the check in, security and passport control.

Much less than Sun Express, prices are the same. No wifi on board, which is a bit odd since the plane is brand new and Sun Express has it on its older 738.


My brother took a coke and some pringles to go with:

And what his wife and the kids took:

The flight was smooth and they landed 20 minutes early. They were out of the airport in a bit less than 30 minutes, which is more than ok given that they had to clear immigration, customs and collect their bags.
