This month, Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines will take delivery of its first Airbus A321neo aircraft. Mehmet Nane, the company’s chief executive officer, discussed the airline’s fleet growth strategy during an interview in London. The new aircraft will reduce the company’s per-seat operating costs, giving it the opportunity to pass along cost savings to customers.
At present, 78 aircraft make up the airline’s active fleet, according to mba’s STAR Fleet database available on the REDBOOK platform. This encompasses 35 Boeing 737-800 aircraft plus 43 Airbus A320 aircraft, from which 28 are the neo variant equipped with CFM LEAP-1A engines.
Pegasus operates flights throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Europe from its hub at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport and other focus cities throughout Turkey.
