Pegasus to start Pakistan-Turkey flights from tomorrow

KARACHI: Pegasus Airlines, a low-cost Turkish carrier, is set to launch its flight operation to and from Pakistan as the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has given a green light to the airline’s flights to land in the country.

The Kurtköy-based airline’s first flight to Pakistan will take off from a Turkey airport on Friday and will touch down at Jinnah International Airport, Karachi.

Pegasus will operate four flights on the Pakistan-Turkey route in a week. The airline’s flight will depart for Turkey from the Karachi airport on every Monday, Wednesday, and Sunday while from Karachi for Turkey on Sunday, Tuesday, and Saturday.

Earlier on September 13, a Crawley-based British airline, Virgin Atlantic, had announced that it would launch flights to Pakistan from December 10 in a bid to facilitate the Pakistani diaspora in the UK. The airline has announced three routes to Pakistan from the UK i.e. London-Lahore, London-Islamabad, and Manchester-Islamabad.


  1. I HAVE SEEN SOME Video clips of UK boder crossings ,ECO,embassies/consulates/immigration procedures are so tough even if you go for as a tourist or for short visits they don’t affix visa stamp on your valid PP,even you full fill their requirments ,as the concerned persons are not satisfied with the applicants logics

  2. Pegasus Airlines is a very good airline and it is great to know it is starting for Pakistan as well. We hope this will strengthen ties with Turkey and the flight will be much cheaper as well.
