LONDON, England – Pegasus Airlines is celebrating 10 years since the launch of its scheduled flights on 1 November 2005, now with a wide-reaching network that spans 101 destinations in 40 countries following the launch of its latest routes to Kars and Ordu in Turkey and Israel’s Eilat (Ovda Airport).

Pegasus has flown over 100 million guests during this period, reaching 103.65 million between 2005 and the first half of 2015, with its expansion continuing with the addition of more routes in Europe, Asia and the Middle East this year including the six-times weekly London Gatwick-Istanbul route in May. Now serving 101 destinations in 40 countries, Pegasus’ additional new destinations for 2015 include Baghdad, Erbil, London (Gatwick), Kutaisi, Nice, Oslo, Eilat (Ovda Airport) and in Turkey Kars, Kastamonu and Ordu – Giresun, together with India’s Delhi and Urumqi under its Pegasus Asia brand.

Pegasus Airlines’ scheduled services were founded in 2005 with the belief and mission that ‘everyone has the right to fly’, with its pricing strategy reflecting this motto. From 2005 until the first half of 2015, 70% of Pegasus’ guests flew at fares of less than 100 Turkish Liras and 25% at fares of less than 50 Turkish Liras.

Pegasus expanding in the UK

In addition to the new six-times weekly London Gatwick route launched this year, Pegasus Airlines also currently flies twice daily from London Stansted to Istanbul, and three days a week direct to the Aegean holiday hotspot of Izmir; with connecting flights from these UK airports onto 29 destinations in Turkey and 29 destinations in the rest of the world. Pegasus flew 122,320 guests to and from the UK between January and July 2015, a rise of 36%, with the most-popular destinations being Istanbul and Ankara followed by longer-haul routes to Tel Aviv, Tehran, Dubai and Tirana.
