Exactly , Pegasus has an extremely hard to beat strategy - Lcc costs , amazing geographical location and transfers . Easy can’t compete , and FR aren’t interested

While most EU nations have quite liberal bilaterals with Turkey, carriers cannot serve Turkey outside of where their AOC is based. So incase of Ryanair it would be Ireland and Easyjet where ever its AOC is based these days.
EU and Turkey are working towards a unified essentially open-skies bilateral, but until such happens carriers are limited in the routes they can operate (and in some cases frequencies also)
