Pegasus Restarting Flights to Tel Aviv

Following the temporary suspension of flights as part of the restrictions to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, Pegasus Airlines flights to Tel Aviv are resuming.

The three-times weekly flights, which will restart on Wednesday 15 July 2020 between London Stansted Airport and Tel Aviv via Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen will depart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays to Ben Gurion International Airport; whilst flights from Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv to London Stansted Airport via Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport will depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.  

Flights to Tel Aviv from London Stansted are now on sale from £244.99 one-way.

Pegasus Airlines CEO Mehmet T. Nane earlier said, “We are really pleased to be relaunching our flights following their temporary suspension as part of the restrictions put in place to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.   It has only been our flights, not us, which have stopped during this uncertain time, which has seemed to us like years rather than months.  We have continued to receive delivery of our new aircraft, enhanced our processes, and prepared for the new period ahead.  We have worked continuously for the days when we would be reunited with our guests.”

Highlighting the matter of hygiene on board the aircraft, Mehmet T. Nane continued: “We put the health and safety of our guests and employees first, and we will never compromise on this. We are disinfecting our aircraft more frequently according to international standards and in line with the aircraft manufacturers’ directions. All our aircraft are fitted with high-efficiency HEPA filters which filter and replace the air in the cabin every three minutes on average.  This means that the same air is not circulating, whilst 60% is fresh air from outside the aircraft.  This air is filtered through the engine through heat of 1300 °C.  This process destroys viruses, bacteria and similar particles in the air before entering the cabin. We also replace these filters periodically.   For this reason, aircraft are one of the most hygienic environments due to this highly effective ventilation method.  However, it is also vital to create and maintain a chain of hygiene throughout the entire journey from leaving the house to getting back home.  This is where our role as individuals is most important.  Let us continue to stay cautious and follow the instructions from the government and official health bodies, so that together we can win this fight.”
