Boarding a flight with residence permit

My consulate kept my passport for renewal process and I have a domestic flight next week. Can I use my Turkish residence permit to board the flight? I asked the airline but they weren't able to answer my question.

Shayan, You should be able to board the plane if your residence ID has a picture of you. However the best is to stop by an airline office and ask them in person. Do you have other picture id's on you?

Thanks for your prompt answer. I do have other IDs but I am afraid they are not written in latin and issued by another country

I only ever use my Turkish issued work/ residence card for domestic flights and have never had a single problem in over 100 flights.
