Since March, Turkish Airlines will not have a monopoly on the Prague-Istanbul line. The Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines will begin to fly regularly from the capital city to the largest Turkish city.
The announced airline will start new direct flights from 30 March. They will fly every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 15 hours and 5 minutes. Vaclav Havel Airport Prague has posted information about the new line on its website.
Pegasus Airlines are the largest Turkish low-cost carrier. Their fleet consists of 39 Boeing 737s. One of them will fly the mentioned line between Prague and Istanbul.
Compared to Turkish Airlines, they will, however, operate flights to the airport in the Asian part of the city, Sabiha Gökçen.
