Turkey’s Pegasus Airlines prepares for its biggest summer yet at London Stansted
With more flights than ever before to popular destinations across Turkey (Türkiye), Pegasus Airlines is looking forward to its biggest flight schedule yet from London Stansted this summer.
Turkey’s (Türkiye) leading low-cost airline is offering more flexibility and choice to holidaymakers in London and the East of England this year by operating 55 direct flights per week to five top destinations across the country, including Istanbul, Antalya, Dalaman, Ankara, and Izmir.
Since launching operations from Stansted in 2007 with a single scheduled flight to Istanbul, the airline has grown significantly carrying six million passengers on routes from the airport.
Chief Financial Officer, Pegasus Airlines’ Barbaros Kubatoğlu said: “That more than six million passengers have flown with Pegasus Airlines from London Stansted since 2007 is a special milestone in our history”.
“Connecting people, places, and cultures is at the heart of what we do, and we’re proud to continue this mission, taking passengers between the UK, Türkiye and beyond”.
“We continually strive to offer the best possible experience on our well-connected low-cost flights and further our sustainability initiatives”.
Gareth Powell, London Stansted’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted that Pegasus Airlines has expanded its summer schedule from London Stansted to its largest ever”.
“Since launching here 16 years ago, the airline has built an incredibly popular network that connects passengers from the region to destinations across Turkey (Türkiye)”.
“By increasing capacity and frequency on existing routes, passengers will have more choice and flexibility without having to travel to other airports”.
“Operating one of the most modern aircraft fleets in Europe, and in particular Airbus’ A321 neo, we are very proud to have them as a highly valued and key partner at the airport”.
“We look forward to working with them for many years to come as they continue to develop and grow their services from London Stansted”.
Pegasus Airlines was founded in 2005 and flies to 129 destinations throughout Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia, including 36 in Turkey (Türkiye). The airline operates a fleet of 93 aircraft, including the fuel-efficient, next generation Airbus A321 neo.
