Pegasus Turkey - what s it like?


Looking for any info available regarding Pegasus of Turkey. Joining as a B737 F/O but would appreciate any insight whatsoever, especially when it comes to quality of life (life outside of work, rostering practices, etc) while working for this company.

Pop me a private message if this feels better.

I'm interested in too. My case is: Cpt A320, over 2000 PIC on type and 7600 hours total. Is Pegasus a good reliable airline? What about roster and commuting options? Thanks to anyone that will share some info.

In my case - FO, 1000+ hours on B737. Looking for a sound company culture, realistic work/life balance load. Money is secondary.

Pegasus Airlines - After work life

Iím an Atc at Istanbul so I can give you information about city life but I dont know pegasus salary or etc. But Pegasus is growing so fast and they are doing well. If you start working, you will be on the asia side of the istanbul. Pegasus located in Sabiha Gokcen Airport which is a bit far to the city centre but not much. Donít compare Turkey with arab countries. You can find everything you want for your daily life. There are lots of places that you can feel yourself at Europe. Istanbul is magacity with 17 million population. You can find many clubs pubs and everything about night life. So Its not like muslim city. I would try to learn some information about Pegasus and wirte here. All I wanted to say you guys dont think about the city.

Like many places, its a great city when visiting, Living there is a totally different thing. If you can find time to see it, and don't mind the traffic, there is a lot to do. Living within 5-10 minutes of LTFJ like 95% of PGS pilots definitely makes life easier.

PGS is not a bad carrier to fly for, if you keep your blinders on regarding managerial issues and just fly. Employs a lot of former military pilots, can feel like an old boys club occasionally with many pilots being buddies from their respective AF graduating classes.

Samca, I'm receiving every day many job offers too but I believe they are automatic and planned weeks or months ago. Nobody is hiring now, it's exactly the opposite! Follow the aviation news please!
Unfortunately no hiring expected, until, next season

Samca... You need to stop your incessant need to gossip.. Pegasus are not recruiting right now .. The same as any regional or international airline currently operating under an EASA approval.

Pegasus are a wonderful company to work with and have arguably one of the best SOPís I have had the pleasure to entertain. But for now, like most of the pan Asia-Euro market airlines they are not in any position to undertake anything of the like...
