Fri, 18 Jul, 2008

Turkey's Pegasus Airlines has said it will increase the number of flights from London Stansted Airport to Istanbul and North Cyprus from September 1st.

Initially, Pegasus Airlines will add one additional flight to its current three-times-a-week schedule. And from October 2008 1st, a fifth-weekly flight will be introduced.

Pegasus Airlines says the new services will appeal to holidaymakers and business travellers who will benefit from connecting flights at its Istanbul hub.

Prices start from £40 one-way, including taxes and charges.

"By increasing the frequency on our London route, we will be able to offer our valued customers greater choice and flexibility than ever before," said airline chairman Ali Sabanci.

Pegasus Airlines is Turkey's largest private scheduled airline in the country, flying over 4.1 million passengers last year to 99 destinations in 17 countries.

Its fleet consists of 12 Boeing 737-800s, two Boeing 737-400s and three Boeing 737-500s.
