Pegasus Airlines and Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN) have signed an exclusive white label deal for EAN to supply hotel and destination services booking capabilities to the award-winning low cost carrier.
Users of flypgs.com will be able to book hotel accommodation and destination services, including city excursions and tours like the Hop-on, Hop-off Tour of Istanbul as well as theatre and attraction tickets including The Lion King in London, through a co-branded portal available on Pegasus Airlines points of sale in the UK, Germany and Turkey.
Pegasus Airlines is the nineteenth European airline to partner with EAN. Other airline partners include bmi, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Blue1 and Alitalia.
Ozlem Mutluer, marketing and PR manager of Pegasus Airlines, said: “The co-branded solution presented by EAN complemented how we are looking to expand our user offering.
“Expedia has a great heritage in working with airlines and when integrating hotel and destination services options to our site, we were conscious of selecting a partner that could offer the best range of product as well as aid a fast and efficient set up.”
Tamer Tamar, vice president and managing director EMEA, EAN, said: “EAN has a history of working closely with the airline industry and the partnership with Pegasus goes even further in solidifying this.
“We have gone through a period of consultation with Pegasus to ascertain their key business requirements and because of the breadth of our offering have been able to tailor our solution to meet these needs. We are delighted to have Pegasus as our first major partner in the growing Turkish market and look forward to seeing the partnership develop and grow over the coming years.”
