The new route between Istanbul and Bratislava launched on 15 May 2024. The flights will operate twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, with departure times from Istanbul at 11.55 and 10.20 and from Bratislava at 14.00 and 12.30. The starting fare for a one-way ticket is €39.99.

Emre Pekesen, Sales and Network Planning Group Director of Pegasus Airlines, said: “We are delighted to be launching a scheduled service connecting Bratislava and Slovakia with the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul, marking our 100th international route, with flights operating twice a week between Bratislava Airport and our hub, Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport. Pegasus Airlines is proud to connect the two countries with a scheduled direct service, offering a unique experience to all who travel with us. We are also looking forward to launching flights between Bratislava and Antalya from 18 May 2024 for the summer season. We would also like to thank the management of Bratislava Airport for their exceptional cooperation.”

Dušan Novota, Chairman of the Board and General Director of the M. R. Štefánik Airport, said: “At Bratislava Airport, we are welcoming a brand new scheduled air carrier today, which will operate its direct flights to Istanbul not only in the summer, but also in the winter season. Thanks to scheduled flights to Istanbul, Bratislava has a connection with an airport, which is a hub – therefore offering the option of transfer connections, e.g. to Cappadocia, Kuwait or Georgia and other destinations within the Pegasus Airlines network. The scheduled year-round route to Istanbul will be joined by the carrier’s direct route to Antalya along with other scheduled and charter flights to (and from) Antalya, and so this year we expect that the highest number of passengers to date will fly from Bratislava to Türkiye.”

Pegasus Airlines has an expanding network of 138 destinations: 35 within Türkiye and 103 internationally.
