Pegasus Airlines resumes cargo operations following Covid-19 suspension

By Rachelle Harry

Pegasus Airlines has resumed its cargo operations, following the temporary suspension of all of its flights due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Pegasus has modified its Airbus A321 neo aircraft, enabling them to carry cargo in the cabin, as well as in the bellyhold.

Prior to the outbreak Pegasus operated cargo flights using only bellyhold capacity.

Pegasus Airlines will load the aircraft at its hubs in Turkey — Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport, and Izmir and Antalya airports — for transportation to domestic and international destinations within its flight network.
