Pegasus Airlines launched its first charter flights in 1990. It was acquired by ESAS Holding in 2005 and since then has operated scheduled flights. The airline offers guests competitively priced, comfortable, and punctual point-to-point and transit flights operated with the newest aircraft under its low-cost model.

The last time we heard from the Turkish low-cost-carrier, it had resumed flights to Tel Aviv on June 15, 2020, following the temporary lockdown restrictions to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
