Pegasus Airlines is adding the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh and Morocco’s Casablanca to its network as the Turkish LCC continues to expand. 

From May 28, Pegasus will fly from the UK’s Manchester and Stansted Airports to Riyadh, its third destination in Saudi Arabia.

The LCC is also adding 3X-weekly direct flights between Eindhoven in the Netherlands and Istanbul from June 29. It already flies to other Dutch destinations, including Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

Pegasus will launch its first Moroccan destination, Casablanca, on July 8, flying 4X-weekly from Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport.

For the summer season, beginning May 28 until Sept. 26, the carrier will operate 3X-weekly between Trabzon on the Turkish Black Sea coast and Amman, Jordan.

The new additions bring the airline’s network up to a total of 110 destinations in 42 countries, Pegasus said.
