Pegasus takes fourth 737-800
Pegasus Airlines has received the fourth new Boeing 737-800 from its order for 24 of the type. The new aircraft, “Ece”, has been named after one of Pegasus Airlines engineer’s new born twins, following the naming of the third 737-800 in the fleet after the other twin "Gulce".
The 189-seat aircraft will actually join Pegasus's sister-airline, IZair, bringing the total aircraft in the fleet to 23 – 18 in operation with Pegasus Airlines, and five with IZair.
The new aircraft will lead to increased frequency and new routes for the airline. It will also move Pegasus and IZair towards a single-type fleet (IZair currently flies Airbus A320 family aircraft). General manager, Sertaç Haybat, said Pegasus Airlines is pleased with the performance, quality of service and economic benefits of the 737s. "Our passengers are very happy with the comfort provided by the 737s. Pegasus Airlines is set to reach a fleet of 24 by the end of 2009, together with IZair. By 2015, our projection is a fleet size of 33,” explained Haybat.
