Budget Airlines in Bulgaria: Wizz Air and EasyJet Add New Varna Flights

Written by on December 14, 2016 in Latest, Leisure, Tourism - No comments

EasyJet, one of the largest budget airlines in Europe, will be adding two flights to and from Varna Airport, at the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. The company announced flights between Varna and London (Gatwick) three times per week, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, which will commence on June 6th, 2017.

Their new flights between Varna and Berlin-Schönefeld will take off twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, starting on June 28th, 2017.

So far, Sofia Airport was the only Bulgarian destination on EasyJet’s flight plans, which will change within half a year, just on time for the summer season at Bulgaria’s coast.

EasyJet’s big competitor Wizz Air will add even more flights to its Varna routes. Actually, the Hungarian company will create a new base at Varna Airport, which will require an investment of 98 million U.S. Dollars. A brand new Airbus A320 will be based there and 36 jobs will be created, as a result.

Wizz Air, the largest budget airline in Europe, already offers flights between Varna and Sofia, as well as between Varna and London (Luton). Soon, there will be as many as seven connections. These are the five new ones:

Varna – Dortmund (Mon., Wed., Fri., starting on July 21st, 201z)

Varna – Munich Memmingen (Tue., Sat., starting on July 22nd, 2017)

Varna – Eindhoven (Thu., Sun., starting on July 23rd, 2017)

Varna – Larnaca (Thu., Sat., starting on July 23rd, 2017)

Varna – Bergamo (Tue., Sat., starting on July 22nd, 2017)

According to Wizz Air, more than 380,000 seats will be available on those routes, annually. At this stage, the airline already offers 38 flight routes to and from Bulgaria. All but one land at and take off from Sofia Airport (Terminal 1).
