Shuttle bus service
There are two airports in Cappadocia; the Kayseri Airport (ASR) and the Nevsehir Airport (NAV). Kayseri is about 1 hour and Nevsehir about 40 minutes from the Henna Hotel. Nevsehir Airport is the newer and better organized airport of the two; hence we recommend flying into this airport if it fits your schedule. We operate airport transfers for both Kayseri and Nevsehir airports and for all incoming and outgoing domestic flights.
Shuttle Service for both the Kayseri and Nevsehir Airports (10€ per person)
We can arrange shuttle bus transfers for all domestic flights arriving / departing Cappadocia (both Kayseri and Nevsehir airports), however, advance booking is required, and the drivers cannot accept passengers not on their list.
Fortunately, booking your transfer is easy! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your transfer request, , and coming. We will book your transfer and inform you by email.
Our driver will be waiting for you at the exit gate of the airport, holding a sign bearing your name. If your flight is delayed, he will wait for you. We can book your transfers to and from the Cappadocia area.
The shuttle bus service costs 10€ per person for both Nevsehir and Kayseri airports.
We can also book a private transfer direct from the airport to our hotel. As the shuttle bus stops at different hotels en-route, the private one will be faster. The private transfer costs 80 Euro for the Nevsehir Airport and 100 Euros for the Kayseri airport. These are the prices for 1 to 10 people. Please send us an email (email@example.com) with your transfer request ( or ), and coming. We will book your transfer and inform you by email.

STANDARD BALLOON TOURS (≈1 HOUR)
The Standard Balloon Tour offers a 45 minute to one-hour flight in the air. You will be collected from the hotel early in the morning, usually before sunrise, and driven to the take-off site. After a light breakfast, you will watch the inflation of the balloons, then it’s time to climb into the basket and the highlight of your Turkey trip begins! After the flight lands, there is a small celebration with champagne and you will receive your flight certificate. You will be driven back to your hotel around 08:30 am, just in time for breakfast. Then you can choose to join a daily tour or take a nap. There will be a maximum of 20 people in the baskets. Please contact us for prices of Standard Balloon flights from various companies.
We don't use the term standard for this flight as it offers way more than a standard flight in Cappadocia.
Duration is minimum one hour and then some… and our pilots do their utmost to make it one of the most memorable hours of your life. From your pick-up at the hotel through to drop-off, time equals approximately three hours; depending on your hotel's location and the time of year, you will usually be back before 9am and will comfortably be able to join a daily excursion.
Double T (TT) BasketNumbers of people in the basket ranges from 16 to 20 depending on the balloon size. Our baskets are Double-T, which means divided into 5 compartments. The central one is for the pilot and the tanks whilst the four corner compartments are for passengers, so even in our largest balloon there will not be more than 5 in a compartment. We respect our guests’ personal space and believe in leg-room for greatest comfort.
Transfers with minibuses are included to the flight price. We will pick you up around half an hour before sunrise at your hotel and return you after the flight.
Insurance covers both the flight and ground handling and is included. Our passengers, pilots and third parties are covered by our policy for up to 40 Million Euro. We often receive requests from tour operators for the insurance details so have put our policy issued by Eureko BV click here to see.
Breakfast is served at our office before take-off. You can have filter coffee or tea with a selection of pastries and fruit.
Champagne Celebration is very serious in ballooning :)Champagne (chilled) is the most important detail of completing a balloon flight for pilots. So we serve the best champagne after each flight with a selection of cakes. Champagne is actually a ballooning tradition; since the Montgolfier brothers made the first flight in 1873 and celebrated a successful landing with champagne. During winter, we also serve mulled wine as the ambient temperature is usually below zero!
Certificates are given as commemorative gifts. Although your pilot might claim that you are licensed to fly with them, don't take it seriously! It's just the side effect of the champagne...
Children between 6 and 12 years old can fly with their parents and they pay the standart rate. Unfortunately we can not accept younger children as they can get a little bored and uncomfortable due to having to stand for an hour plus in the same place
Payment: You can pay the flight fee in cash at our office in many currencies including Euro, Turkish Lira and US Dollar.
Butterfly BEYOND Flight
We do not operate the Beyond Flight from 01st November to 31st March due to unsuitable weather conditions
So what's the difference between Butterfly Flight and Butterfly BEYOND Flight?
To begin with, the Beyond flight includes everything that a Butterfly Flights offers...
and more; you will be airborne for 1.5 to 2 hours. With the Beyond option there will be a maximum of 3 people in your compartment therefore, in total, not more than 12 passengers. This ensures that you have a freedom of space for viewing and photographing the breath-taking vista of Cappadocia. The Beyond flight will take off far from the other balloons and finish the flight way beyond.
Even though the flight path completely depends on the wind conditions of the day, Our pilot's experinces usually ensures that you see twice more than on any other balloon flight.
Invariably there are longer landing parties with Beyond flights with even more champagne. Also given on a Beyond flight; a Butterfly Balloon shaped, limited edition pin as a memory of your Beyond flight
