Pegasus restarting Turkey - UK routes.

Turkish holiday carrier Pegasus has relaunched its twice-daily operation between Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen and London Stansted following Turkey coming off the UK's red list of countries. The airline has also made its service between Istanbul and Manchester fly five times each week.

UK travel trade publication TTG, reported that the airline will also be launching flights between Stansted and Antalya during this winter period twice a week, commencing on 20th October. A day later Pegasus will begin a London Stansted-Izmir route scheduled to operate five times per week.  

Chief commercial officer Guliz Ozturk said: “In light of the new announcement putting Turkey back into the amber list, we’re seeing strong growth in our bookings to Turkey from England.   

In response to this growing demand and desire for autumn travel, we’re delighted also to be expanding our flight programme from Stansted and Manchester to Turkey.

We’re planning to further increase the number of our flights from England later in the autumn if demand continues to rise, and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming our guests back onboard as travel begins to reopen again."

The carrier has a fleet of over 90 aircraft, the majority being from the Airbus A320 family and 28 Boeing 737 aircraft that are being phased out.  With over 50 more aircraft on order the airline also plans to increase its destination list to over 118.
