Pegasus Receives 100th Jet in Honour of 100th Anniversary…
Commenting on this delivery was Güliz Öztürk, CEO of Pegasus:
“We’ve now reached our 100-aircraft milestone with our new A321neo aircraft, Cumhuriyet. We are taking strong steps into the future with an extensive international network spanning Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Caucasus, and across Türkiye from north to east to south and west.”
“With our innovative, rational, principled, and responsible approach, we aim to be one of the industry’s leading low-cost airlines that streamlines air travel while offering affordable fares.”
“The A321 is widely recognised in the industry as a game-changer, featuring a distinct configuration compared to standard short-to-medium range commercial aircraft.”
“These aircraft offer more capacity through a longer fuselage while maintaining an operational process that aligns well with our current structure.”
“In essence, this allows us to provide higher-capacity services without complicating our operational setup. In this regard, we are yielding high value efficiencies.”
“We are committed to continuing the transformation that we started in Turkish aviation 18 years ago and remain dedicated to excellence.”
“With our aircraft that make up Türkiye’s most modern fleet, we will continue to work with all our strength for our country, our industry, our stakeholders, and our guests.”
