Pegasus Airlines were named the cheapest European low cost airline in October 2013, so if you’re looking for cheap flights you’re in the right place. Based in Turkey, Pegasus was part owned by Aer Lingus until 1994. The company is now 100% Turkish owned, and operates the majority of its flights between Turkey and Cyprus. Although it’s not part of any airline alliance, Pegasus Airlines has code-share agreements with Air Berlin, Azerbaijan Airlines, IZair, and KLM.
How to Check In
72 hours before scheduled departure, and closes 40 minutes before. You can also check-in at a self service kiosk if you’re flying from Antalya or Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen, although the airline is aiming to make this service available at all of its destination airports. There’s a check-in fee for all flights, which is payable on booking. The price differs based on route but starts at €5* (about £3.90) for flights within Europe. *Prices subject to change
Baggage Allowance and Fees
On flights to and from the UK, passengers are entitled to bring 20kg of checked luggage. Excess baggage costs £8* per piece. *Prices subject to change
Seating – Leg Room, Choosing Seats
You can choose and pay for premium seats. On international flights seats in the exit row, first row, and window cost €15* (about £11.75), aisle seats cost €10 (about £7.80) and middle seats cost €8 (roughly £6.25). The seat pitch is a standard 29-30”, the same as most no-frills airlines. *Prices subject to change
Service charges may apply when booking your flight. These can be as little as €2* (about £1.55). *Prices subject to change
Meals, Snacks, Drinks
Like most budget airlines, Pegasus doesn’t offer a complimentary meal service. You can buy snacks while you’re in the air and hot meals are also available at an extra cost. These can be selected up to 24 hours in advance.
Pegasus publishes its current punctuality daily on its website. Just fewer than 9 out of 10 flights on average arrive or depart on time. They’re the only Turkish airline to do this, and are committed to their punctuality.
