It is Turkey's leading low-cost carrier offering economically priced point-to-point flights on short and medium-haul routes. Founded with the mission that everyone has the right to fly, Pegasus offers its guests affordable, on-time flights and the newest aircraft under the auspices of its low-cost model.
