Rising demand for Turkey tourism: Pegasus Airlines partners with Expedia Partner Solutions


Low-cost Turkish carrier Pegasus Airlines is joining forces with Expedia Partner Solutions (EPS), the B2B brand of Expedia Group, in order to keep up with Turkey’s rapid increase in both domestic and international tourism.

2018 saw a rise in domestic travel in Turkey, reaching more than 78 million trips annually, and a resulting 14% rise in the spend of domestic tourists compared to the previous year. Last year, Turkey also achieved the highest growth of international inbound tourism across 33 European countries (21.8%) . The growing strength of Turkey’s tourism economy plus other industry events led Pegasus to change their accommodations provider. After careful consideration, Pegasus chose to join forces with EPS, integrating with EPS’s e-commerce template solution, For Partners.
