Alcohol law - dalaman airport after 10pm

We're flying out on the 28th June for 18 days, staying in Kalkan. Our flight arrives around 10:05pm. Just wondering if they'll be any restrictions on buying any alcohol items in duty free? Does the 10pm restriction apply to Airports?

Many thanks :)

Seems not, Duty Free still open 24-7.

I may be wrong but I think this law is still at the proposal stage and not actually in force at the moment. It certainly wasn't in force last week!

Yes, law is in force,(as from 24th May) but does not seem to apply to the Airports. However, it may be difficult for the authorities to enforce this law on every outlet that is selling alcohol. This may be the reason some people think the law is not in force yet.

The Efes Website has been closed down and the next step is to stop all alcohol advertising which includes all those umbrellas which advertise Efes.

No wonder they are protesting. Have their government any idea how much these sort of things might affect their Tourism trade in the long run???

Still able to buy alcohol after 10pm in shops? On the way back from Tanzore@ Chapter one last night, we poped in to lucky last night to pick up a few efes & a bottle of wine as we plan to stay in this evening & were still served. As were we when we did a late shop at yali.

This, I suppose, was bound to happen and everyone expected it to and the law is very hard to implement as how could the authorites be present in every alcohol outlet between 10pm and 6am. Unless, of course, they where tipped off by reading about it on the internet? Keep in mind ithat it's not just tourists who read these threads, so stop and think. Is it a good idea to boast about breaking the law?

If you are happy with the service you have received and you want to keep on buying after hours best to keep it to yourself, also, perhaps, best not to name any shops involved.
