Sabiha Gukcen airport

Has anyone experience of SG airport with Pegasus.

A friend needs to change planes there with a partner in a wheelchair.

Re: Sabiha Gukcen airport

Oh dear, that's not what I wanted to hear.

There aren't any direct flights to Izmir from Manchester, only Stansted.

I was hoping it would be a better option than Istanbul airport which is having a lot of problems with planes being delayed and not being able to land because of wind.

Don't give up on sabiha gökçen, it's a fine airport. The problem is Pegasus they don't seem to have good time management skills. I have used both for the last 10 years and had two missed connections at sabiha gökçen but got to my destination both times, a few hours late I admit but all roads lead to Rome.
The saving grace for your friend is that you can get wheel chair assistance at most airports in the world and they will fast track you to your plane on time. When they can't for one reason or another they will put you up at their hotel.

Not sure whether they fly out of Manchester, but check Lufthansa as they fly to Izmir via either Munich or Cologne.

Just had a look at Lufthansa. They do flights from Izmir to Manchester but with only one change at Munich the prices are very high, around 6 thousand lira. The cheapest, with two changes was 2600tl, so it looks as though it'll have to be Pegasus.

We’ve landed there many times to transfer to Gazipasa, never a problem, on two occasions we landed in Sabina late but got to the gate for Gazipasa and they were waiting for us.

Re: Sabiha Gukcen airport

Use the Pegasus service from Stanstead to Izmir ,I've used it with a disabled elderly relative ,you may have a bit of a drive to Stanstead but it's better to have a direct flight than !ay overs at airports.
Make your journey as easy as possible

Re: Sabiha Gukcen airport

Does anyone know if you can buy lounge access at Sabiha Gokcen in advance ?
Their website shows no way to do this and I dont want to pay Priority Pass a load of money for just one visit...

If you are travelling with Pegasus you can pay to use their lounge.
