Saudi Arabian carrier flynas has announced the launch of codeshare flights with Turkish budget carrier Pegasus Airlines, as part of efforts to expand its route network in Turkey.
The first phase of the codeshare agreement between the two airlines will open up five new destinations for flynas guests traveling to Turkey – including Antalya, Ankara, Adana, Hatay and Trabzon – by leveraging on Pegasus Airlines’ network of domestic flights departing from Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen International Airport.
The first codeshare flight takes effect from May 15.
Commenting on the agreement, NAS Holding group CEO Bander Al Mohanna said: “We are excited at the prospect of opening up five important cities of Turkey to passengers from KSA. Pegasus Airlines is Turkey’s leading private airline and brings a pedigree of over two decades of being at the forefront of innovation within the Turkish aviation landscape.
“Connecting with such a reputable domestic partner will allow us to offer a new level of convenience and connectivity to flynas guests traveling from KSA to experience Turkey and its many stunning attractions.
“The codeshare agreement with Pegasus Airlines reflects flynas’ continuing commitment to provide new routes and destinations to our guests.”
