Flights options - Istanbul to Kayseri/Nevsehir?

I've been looking online for return flights from Istanbul, and I have only found Pegasus and Turkish Air (and Anadolu, but that is part of Turkish Air, right?).

Are there any other airlines between Istanbul and Cappadocia? We are pretty flexible - we can leave from any airport in Istanbul, and we can fly into either Kayseri or Nevsehir, since we are renting a car. But from reading on a few websites about Cappadocia, it sounded like there may be other airlines that offer flights between those two places as well.

The cheapest return tickets I can find are $102, which seems too high!

To find all flights within Turkey, you can use Bulucak: http://bulucak.com/. This used to have an English option, then it was disabled, and now choosing English flips the website from Bulucak to Aerobilet: https://www.aerobilet.net/. Aerobilet seems to show the same flights, but with higher prices (even when I asked for Turkish Lira instead of US dollars). In any case, once you have identified the flights, you book directly with the airline's website (they all have English options and issue e-tickets).

Looking at both of those website, they indeed show only Turkish Air (from Atatürk) and Anadolu Jet and Pegasus (from Sabiha Gökçen) on these routes. If you want to check other airlines, look at the pages for Onur Air, AtlasJet, and Sun Express. Remember that Sabiha Gökçen takes more time and money to reach from central Istanbul than Atatürk does, so figure that in any "cheaper" fare from Sabiha Gökçen.

I'm not sure why you feel a round trip of $102 is high; that seems cheap to me. Do buy in advance, as the fares do go up closer to travel.

I had an awful time at Ataturk airport in Istanbul. Be prepared for a very long and frustrating customs/passport control line. Missed my connecting flight to southern Turkey, despite having 90 minutes. Pegasus airlines tried to charge me three times my original fare for re-booking a replacement flight. I was traveling on budget, so I ended up just staying in Istanbul longer than I planned. Few people at the airport spoke English. Perhaps my experience was a one-off, but I would just suggest ensuring adequate time for dealing with customs. There are multiple security checks, even if arriving from an international flight.
