Pegasus Takes Delivery of its 100th Aircraft

Pegasus Airlines' 100th aircraft named "Cumhuriyet", which was added to its fleet in the 100th anniversary of the Republic, landed at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport. The new Airbus A321neo type aircraft with the silhouette and signature of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on the tail was specially designed for the 100th anniversary of the Republic.

Pegasus Airlines, which continues to expand its fleet day by day with aircraft with new generation engines, received its 100th aircraft named "Cumhuriyet", which was added to its fleet in the 100th anniversary of the Republic. Departing from Hamburg, Germany, the new Airbus A321neo type aircraft with TC-RDP tail registration landed at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport at 16:36 on Saturday, 30 September 2023. The aircraft, which was received by Pegasus Airlines Chairman Mehmet T. Nane and Pegasus Airlines CEO Güliz Öztürk at Airbus' facilities in Hamburg, was specially designed for the 100th anniversary of the Republic with the silhouette and signature of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on the tail. "Cumhuriyet", the 9th of 16 new aircraft to join the Pegasus fleet in 2023, is the 75th aircraft Pegasus has taken delivery of and the 100th aircraft of the fleet within the scope of the Airbus order signed in 2012, which has reached a total of 150 aircraft with modifications over the years.

Making a statement on the subject, Güliz Öztürk, CEO of Pegasus Airlines, said that they are very proud to receive their 100th aircraft in the 100th year of the Republic and added: "We are crossing the 100 aircraft threshold with our new A321neo aircraft 'Cumhuriyet'. In addition to Europe, we are taking firm steps forward on our path with a wide international flight network spread across the Middle East, Africa, Caucasus and Turkey from north to east, south to west. With our innovative, rational, principled and responsible approach, we continue our efforts to become a leading low-cost airline that facilitates travelling while offering affordable fares."

"We will continue the change we initiated in the field of aviation in Turkey 18 years ago"

Emphasising that all deliveries after 2021 will consist of A321neo type aircraft, Güliz Öztürk said, "A321s are defined as game-changer aircraft by the industry, with different configurations compared to standard short-medium range commercial aircraft. These aircraft offer more capacity in a longer fuselage, but have an operational process that is not very different from our current structure. In other words, we can provide service with higher capacity without complicating our operational structure. In this respect, we achieve high efficiency contribution." and continued his words as follows "We will continue to sustain the change we initiated in the field of aviation in Turkey 18 years ago with the determination to always achieve the best; we will continue to work with all our strength for our country, our industry, our stakeholders and our guests with our fleet of Turkey's newest aircraft." 

Türkiye is a Shining Star in Civil Aviation

The Republic is much more than a form of government proclaimed 100 years ago. Republic is equality, freedom, independence. It is an understanding that blends faith, hope, development, modernity and innovative perspective of a nation that has fought great struggles in history. Today, if our country is a shining star in the world with its civil aviation sector that continues to develop and grow day by day, we owe this to our ancestor who said "The future is in the skies", to the Republic, which is the greatest legacy he left to us, and to the bright values of the Republic. As Pegasus Airlines, we are taking firm steps forward on the path paved by the Republic for the sustainable development of our civil aviation, and we are working with all our strength for our country, our industry and our guests.

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's "O rising new generation! You are the future. We founded the Republic, you are the ones who will raise it and keep it alive." We protect our Republic with the strength and faith we take from his words, and we march towards the future with determination and hope. We are proud to add our 100th aircraft "Cumhuriyet" to our fleet in the 100th anniversary of our Republic. With a fleet exceeding the 100 aircraft threshold and an extensive international flight network spread across Europe as well as the Middle East, Africa, Caucasus and Turkey, from north to east, from south to west; we continue our efforts with our innovative, rational, principled and responsible approach, with the aim of becoming a leading low-cost airline that facilitates travelling while offering affordable fares.
