Pegasus, Turkey’s leading low-cost airline, has signed a codeshare agreement with Nile Air, Egypt’s largest private airline, which will see Pegasus guests being able to purchase flights from Pegasus channels for the Nile Air flights between Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Cairo as of 15 June 2018.
Pegasus guests will be able to travel with Nile Air four days a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with the flights operated from Sabiha Gökçen to Cairo at 16:05 and from Cairo to Sabiha Gökçen at 11:50.
Pegasus is currently operating six codeshare partnerships, with agreements in place with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Flynas, Alitalia, Qatar Airways, Delta Air Lines and most recently, Nile Air.
Founded with the mission that everyone has the right to fly and having launched its scheduled services in 2005, Pegasus Airlines is now, in just over a decade, Turkey’s leading low-cost airline and one of the region’s frontrunners with a growing network of 110 destinations, including 38 in Turkey and 72 other international destinations in 43 countries across Europe, Russia and the Caucasus, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.
Pegasus Airlines launched its first charter flights in 1990 and was then acquired by ESAS Holding in 2005, since which it has been operating scheduled flights as Turkey’s first and leading low-cost airline. Pegasus offers its guests competitively priced, comfortable and punctual point-to-point and transit flights operated with the newest aircraft under the auspices of its low-cost model.
Nile Air is an Egyptian airline based at Cairo International Airport that operates scheduled services to destinations in Egypt and the Middle East, Persian Gulf, Southern Europe, Asia and Africa. Nile Air is the largest private airline in Egypt and second only to EgyptAir.
