On 17 December 2018, the Turkish low-cost company Pegasus Airlines launched a new connection between Ankara Esenboga and Paris-Charles de Gaulle, its fourth between the Turkish capital and France after Paris-Orly, Lyon and Marseilles.
Pegasus Airlines (OACI / PGT; IATA / PC) operates two weekly flights between Ankara Esenboga airport (ESB) and Paris-Charles de Gaulle (Terminal 3), by Boeing 737-800 with 189 seats.
