Budapest Airport re-opens connection to Istanbul
Pegasus Airlines’ Budapest to Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen
Flights from Budapest to Istanbul’s Sabiha Gӧkçen Airport have returned with Pegasus Airlines. The route resumes direct connectivity between Hungary’s capital city and Turkey’s major city which bestrides Europe and Asia, across the Bosphorus Strait.
The Turkish low-cost carrier will operate the 1,080km link with its fleet of 737s and A320s, initially twice-weekly as travellers and the business community welcome the relaunch.
“Bringing back business safely is a key priority at our airport and it is hugely positive to welcome Pegasus Airlines back to Budapest,” said Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport. “Reinstating the popular Istanbul route will provide business and leisure opportunities, as well as the welcome return of visitors to our beautiful city. Re-opening connectivity, boosting trade and tourism, while providing our customers with more connectivity, convenience and choice is our primary goal.”
