If you regularly go on holiday in Turkey, Pegasus Airlines should be a familiar term. Because the airline is not only based in Istanbul, it has been offering cheap flights to the popular holiday destination for over 20 years . Founded in 1989 as a charter airline, the company initially had to contend with the regional unrest and the lack of tourists. It was only in 1992 that flight operations really began. The highlight of the company’s history so far was 2005, the year when Pegasus Airlines became a low-cost airline. This decision was rewarded with success, so the 2007 line transported most passengers to and from Turkey. Three Boeing machine types are mainly used for this purpose: Boeing 737-400, 737-500 and 737-800. They serve over 70 destinations in Asia and Europe.
The focus, and therefore the main airport used, is the Sabiha Gökçen, which acts as a hub for all travelers to Turkey who fly with Pegasus Airlines.
The company itself is privately organized and belongs to the group ESAS Holding. The staff of the line as well as the cabin staff are trained in their own training center.
