Pegasus Airlines upgrades Skopje service


Pegasus Airlines is upgrading flights between Izmir and Skopje, launched this June, to year-round operations. Initially scheduled as a seasonal service, the low cost airline will maintain the route twice per week throughout the winter with its Airbus A320neo aircraft. Pegasus Airlines originally planned to introduce services between Izmir and Skopje back in 2019 but ultimately chose not to do so. That year, Izmir was Skopje’s fourteenth busiest unserved route, as well as Turkish Airlines’ third most popular transfer destination to and from the Macedonian capital, behind only New York and Ankara. A year later, the Turkish coastal city became the ninth busiest unserved point out of Skopje as traffic flows changed due to the coronavirus pandemic and Turkey became an even more popular destination for Macedonian citizens due to accessible entry requirements. The Izmir service complements Pegasus’ flights between Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen Airport and Skopje.

      I'm surprised they don't fly to either Ljubljana or Zagreb. They offer great connections too.

      Slovenia and Croatia requires visa for Turkish citizens. Turkish locals mostly fly with Pegasus.

      So you are literallly saying non turkish dont fly with PC? What a non sense. Of course majority of them are turkish, nevertheless PC has a huge domestic network, so they are probably mostly turkish, but how can this be used as an argument why PC doesnt fly to LJU i can not understand.
