Pegasus Airlines Launches New Cargo Flights

Pegasus Airlines has resumed cargo flights following the temporary suspension of all its flights within the scope of the measures taken and restrictions imposed in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Prior to the crisis, Pegasus had been providing cargo transportation services in its narrow body passenger aircraft but has now converted its A321 neo passenger aircraft, in line with national and international regulations, for the purpose of transporting additional cargo within the cabin itself, in order to increase capacity and carry more weight.

During the first stage, Pegasus Airlines will load cargo onto the aircraft from its main hub, Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport, and Izmir and Antalya airports in Turkey, for transportation to domestic and international destinations within its flight network.

By resuming its cargo flights using the increased capacity of its A321 neo aircraft, Pegasus Airlines is helping to meet the demands of companies who are both importing and exporting, and is thereby aiming to provide added value to the national economy by conducting cargo flights to domestic and international destinations in its flight network.
