Pegasus adds premium

A new premium flight package called Business Flex has been launched by Turkish carrier Pegasus Airlines allowing passengers to change tickets and cancel bookings without charge.

Other features include 15 kg of free check-in baggage on internal flights in Turkey and 20kg on all international flights as well as 12kg free cabin baggage and seat selection, including seats with extra legroom.

Business Flex is one of four flight packages offered by the airline to suit different travel preferences and budgets. The others are Pegasus Basic, Essentials and Advantage.

Pegasus launched as a charter carrier in 1990, transferring to low-cost scheduled services after being acquired by ESAS Holding with the mission that “everyone has the right to fly”.

It now operates to 36 destinations in Turkey and 72 in the rest of the world for a total network of 108 destinations in 40 countries from its hub at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport to Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Russia and Central Asia.

Pegasus made the single largest aircraft order to date in Turkish civil aviation history in 2012 for 100 new Airbus aircraft including 25 options with a total list price of some US$12bn.
