early morning, late night flight out of SAW

I've seen the time estimates for a trip from Sultanahmet to S. Gokcen. If we use the Havatas shuttle early in the morning and late at night, any chance the typical time we should allow is reduced? We will need to catch a 7:35 am flight in the morning and our return flight comes in at 11:55 pm. TIA

Sarah, Your post is not clear. After your arrival at IST at 11.55 pm, do you want to spend the night at Sultanahmet before your flight from SAW? I would advise against it. Here are the Havatas schedules: "http://www.havatas.com.tr/". I suggest that you spend a couple of hours at the lounge at the arrivals hall and rest and take the first Havatas bus to Taksim at 4.00 am. At Taksim, you can take the 5.00 am Havatas bus to Sabiha Gokcen. This seems to be the most economical alternative. Otherwise a taxi from Ataturk to Sabiha Gokcen costs around 140 TL.

good luck,
