Pegasus Airlines becomes the latest low-cost carrier in Lviv; adds services from Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen to Dubai
- Pegasus Airlines continues expanding and last week added two further routes to its network. On 17 October, thrice-weekly flights were launched on the 1,100-kilometre route from Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (SAW) to Lviv (LWO) in western Ukraine. The Ukrainian airport has seen a number of route launches this year, including Dortmund and Venice (Wizz Air) and Kraków and Wrocław (eurolot), as the airport reopened for business following a comprehensive upgrade of its facilities. On 18 October, Pegasus Airlines added another new route from its Istanbul base and now serves Dubai (DXB) with four weekly flights. Scheduling of the new service makes connections from Europe possible. This is the Turkish low-cost airline’s first route to the Arabian Peninsula.
