Now rebranded as Pegas Touristik, the agency's Bangkok-based general manager Kubilay Atac told TTG Asia e-Daily the move reflected the group's commitment towards Thailand. There was an unprecedented growth in Russian passengers since Pegas entered the market in the 2005/2006 high season, he said.

He added that Pegas chose to invest in T Traveller2000 instead of establishing a new company due to the long-term partnership between the two and its trust in the Thai partner's resources and operations.

T Traveller2000 was groundhandler for Pegas for five years.

PGS also owns Moscow-based Nordwind Airlines, which operates regular charter services from Russia to European and Asian destinations, including Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand.
