PEGASUS airline

by Jawnuta

I am looking for a one-way ticket from Berlin to Istanbul around July 1st 2009.

So far the cheapest I found are SunExpress and Condor. (around E 120 one way)

I have researched a PEGASUS airline (flypgs.com). They fly from Berlin to Turkey.
On their website I am not able to find a ticket from Berlin to Istanbul. I can get a ticket from Berlin to Izmir, Antalia, etc with the STOP in Istanbul.
But....I can not leave the plane in Istanbul itself.

Question to all of you familiar with Pegasus:
- Is it too early to get a July ticket, and they are not available yet?
- They do not let people off the plane in Istanbul?
- Any other suggestions as to where and when I can get ticket cheaper than E100?

www.skyscanner.net suggests Turkish Airlines is the cheapest direct carrier for your dates. Nothing under 100 euros, I'm afraid.

If you look at the indirect flights you can fly into Heathrow and out again with Easyjet for around 100 euros, which is entirely stupid (and a very long flight).

You should be able to book tickets for July with most carriers by now, budget or mainstream, although some may not be available.

Am not familiar with Pegasus, but if they do not indicate that they fly Berlin>Istanbul then I think you can safely assume that they will not let you off the plane there if they stop for refuelling/whatever.

Pegasus: try from Cologne or Dusseldorf or Munich to Istanbul. Fares available from 120 euros all-in one way.

Just look around their website.

the owners of pegasus airlines just bought a big share in air berlin yesterday, so a merger of the airlies could happen soon i guess.

Re: PEGASUS airline

Big share? Pegasus is buying 15% into Air Berlin to be precise.

15% is a big share in the buisness world and a merger would be an obvious move i think as air berlin is generally buying up and turkey is a place where they plan an expansion in the near future according to the air berlin management.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

An Open and Shut Case

Few things are more disappointing than arriving in Istanbul and finding out that the sites you were planning to visit are closed. So pay close attention to what is open and shut on the days you are there. It can be confusing.

Shoe Shine Boys

by Mariajoy

On my first visit to Istanbul I was surprised to see sooooo many youngsters (mostly boys) from around 6 years old upwards, shining shoes on the city streets. They work long hours to bring much needed income to their families. He didn't shine my shoes (or those of anyone in my party) but I did give him something for letting me take his photo.

Besiktas is the best team in Turkey!...

by mindcrime

If you are into football(soccer), or just a fan of Besiktas FC or you just happen to pass from Besiktas football stadium have in mind that you can visit the museum of Besiktas FC right there, under one gate of the stadium. There's no entrance fee and you can see some of the trophies this team had won through the years and other memorabilia.

A few meters away is the official store of the team where you can buy tshirt, hats, balls, souvenirs etc all with the colors of Besiktas, black and white

Kumkapi - Old Fishing District

by Hopkid

Situated near the shores of the Sea of Marmara and down the hill from Grand Bazaar, Kumkapi is an old working class neighborhood. A harbor used to be located here from Byzantine times and fisherman lived in this area. The fisherman and harbor (albeit a more modern one) still exist as do a number of seafood restaurants in and around the main square of this charming district. It's a nice walk from the Grand Bazaar/Beyazit area down Gedikpasa Caddesi, left on Kadirga Limani Caddesi, and left on Ustat Sokak to get to the small square with the fountain in the middle. It was here we ate an early dinner at Kor Agop and enjoyed watching children playing in the street and men getting their hair cut at the barber shop across the steet (Ordekli Bakkal Sokak).

Carpets, Kilims and good friends: Baktiroglu

by dutchboycalledjan about grand bazaar

This was a nice, small shop in the Big Bazaar. We entered it by good luck with a specific wish and Mustafa succeeded were other shops failed to deliver the requested embroidered cloth. When you're looking for a well-tempered salesman who is friendly, let you take you time, has good (not too strong) tea and wants you to be happy - his motto is: 'as long as we have our good health': this is the place. When we were there, two of his previous customers came back, just for tea and a chat. We bought a hand embroidered (silk on cotton) cloth, square (most are rectangular, to be used on beds) of very good quality. There are cheaper one, but this cloth was well worth its about 300 euro's.
