Some of the passengers from the inaugural flight between Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen and Prague seem to have opted for the ‘large’ boarding pass option when checking in on-line. Others simply enjoyed the Turkish delight. The airline also started operations to Geneva this week.
- Pegasus Airlines added two more destinations to its burgeoning Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (SAW) hub this week, with the start-up of operations to Prague (PRG) on 19 June and Geneva (GVA) on 21 June. The former will be flown four times weekly, while the latter, the carrier’s third Swiss destination (after Basel and Zurich), will be operated thrice-weekly. Interestingly, the growing presence of the LCC’s new A320s is being felt on these routes, as both routes are flown with a mixture of equipment, including its more regular 737-800 operations. Both routes face no direct competition. However, Turkish Airlines offers both points from its Istanbul Atatürk hub, with Prague served double-daily and Geneva thrice-daily.
