Pegasus Continues Growth In 2013

Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines boosted operating income by 28 per cent last year thanks to fuller aircraft and a jump in passenger numbers of almost a fifth. Operating profit hit $117m for the year as the carrier wrung more service time out of its aircraft and increased average passenger numbers per flight to 149, resulting in an average load factor of 80.2 per cent – 2.1 points above 2012. Pegasus currently operates Boeing equipment but will switch to Airbus once its firm orders for 75 A320neo aircraft are delivered.
