Pegasus Airlines passengers take-off on new Dubai connection
18 October 2012
Passengers checking in for the first Pegasus Airlines connection to Dubai from Stansted enjoyed the comfort of No.1 Traveller lounge before taking flight en-route to the popular Emirate earlier today.
Operating four times a week, with fares as low as £152.65 one-way including taxes and charges, this new link is already proving popular and joins other Middle East connections on the Pegasus route network that include Tel Aviv, Tehran and Beirut.
Speaking on behalf of Stansted Airport, Commercial Director, Jonathan Crick commented:
"This new connection to Dubai is a very exciting proposition and to see passengers checking in today, less than a month after Pegasus announced the new link via Istanbul, endorses our belief there is appetite and demand for mid and long-haul services from Stansted."
"We have seen great interest in our Dubai connection since ticket sales went live," said Peter Mantle, Head of UK Sales and Operations for Pegasus Airlines.
"Direct flights to Istanbul from Stansted were increased to twice daily earlier this year and I’m delighted to be here again celebrating yet another landmark event with the launch of our fourth Middle East connection."
