Erkilet International Airport or Kayseri Erkilet Airport (Turkish: Kayseri Erkilet Havalimanı, IATA: ASR, ICAO: LTAU) is a military airbase and public airport located 5 km (3.1 mi) north of Kayseri in the Kayseri Province of Turkey.
The prior capacity of the airport was 600,000 passengers per year. With the opening of the new international terminal in March 2007, its total capacity increased up to one million passengers per year.
Public buses run from the airport (just outside the gates) to the city center and vice versa. Travelers can also hire a taxi or rent a car. A less expensive option is to pre-arrange your airport pick up either through a travel agency or your hotel.
A number of cargo airlines operate to and from Erkilet. As a passenger airport, Erkilet serves a culturally and historically rich part of Turkey.
