Five-times weekly direct flights are also now operating from Manchester Airport to Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport.  Both routes offer onward connections across Pegasus’ network of 36 destinations in Turkey, including to the popular coastal resorts oozing culture and relaxation, such as Bodrum, Dalaman and Antalya - as well its 83 other international destinations.

 

Pegasus is also launching twice-weekly direct flights between London Stansted and Antalya for the winter season on 20 October.  The airline will also be starting five-times weekly direct flights on 21 October between London Stansted and Izmir, on Turkey’s Aegean coast.

 

Pegasus Airlines CCO, Güliz Özturk said: “In light of the new announcement putting Turkey back into the amber list, we’re seeing strong growth in our bookings to Turkey from England, and in response to this growing demand and desire for autumn travel, we’re delighted also to be expanding our flight programme from London Stansted and Manchester to Turkey, with excellent connections across our network of 119 destinations in 44 countries - meaning travellers will have a lot more choice with our flexible booking options this autumn and winter. We’re planning to further increase the number of our flights from England later in the autumn if demand continues to rise, and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming our guests back on board as travel begins to reopen again.”
