JEDDAH: Saudi national carrier flynas announced the launch of codeshare flights with major Turkish budget carrier Pegasus Airlines starting sales on April 27, as part of efforts to expand its route network in Turkey.
The first phase of the codeshare agreement between the two airlines will open up five new destinations for flynas guests traveling to Antalya, Ankara, Adana, Hatay and Trabzon in Turkey by leveraging on Pegasus Airlines’ extensive network of domestic flights departing from Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport. Everyday low fares are available online or local travel agents.
The first codeshare flight takes effect from May 15, with this partnership enabling Saudi residents to enjoy seamless booking and travel between the Kingdom and destinations across Turkey, while for Turkish nationals residing in the Kingdom visiting their families in Turkey will now become easier and more convenient.
“We are excited at the prospect of opening up five important cities of Turkey to passengers from the Kingdom. Pegasus Airlines is Turkey’s leading private airline and brings a pedigree of over two decades of being at the forefront of innovation within the Turkish aviation landscape. Connecting with such a reputable domestic partner will allow us to offer a new level of convenience and connectivity to flynas guests traveling from the Kingdom to experience Turkey and its many stunning attractions,” said Bander Al-Mohanna, group CEO of NAS Holding.
Pegasus Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Guliz Ozturk said: “As a result of this codeshare agreement all passengers traveling on Flynas’ network can book their flights on its website and through its sales agents to Trabzon, Ankara, Hatay, Adana and Antalya via Pegasus’ main hub at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen Airport. We are delighted that this agreement will contribute to the expansion of Pegasus’ regional influence, as well as presenting new opportunities for both airlines.”
