Flag carrier Bulgaria Air is continuing to restore its flight schedule, and in July and August is adding new additional frequencies to its flights to some of the most preferred transfer points in Europe, the airline said in a media statement.
In the coming weeks, Bulgaria Air will increase its flights to Amsterdam, Zurich, Berlin, Frankfurt and Athens.
The national carrier is starting a second morning flight on the route to Amsterdam. The flights will be operated until the end of August, and the days of operation are planned according to passenger demand, the airline said. The first of them will be July 17.
From July 18 to the end of August, every Saturday, Bulgaria Air will operate additional flights to Zurich, and from July 23 to August 6, every Thursday there will be a new frequency on the route between Sofia and Berlin. Additional flights to Frankfurt will run from July 25 to August 29, every Saturday morning.
In August, Bulgaria Air launches a new frequency to Greek capital Athens. Additional flights will be operated every Monday from August 3 to 24 inclusive. In parallel, the airline continues to operate on the line with its regular frequencies every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and passengers can take advantage of daily flights to Athens because of a codeshare agreement between Bulgaria Air and Aegean Airlines.
Meanwhile, the national carrier has recovered 65 per cent of its frequencies and operates regularly to all domestic and international routes in Europe. The only destinations to which the airline has suspended its flights because of restrictions imposed by local authorities are Russia, Portugal, Israel and Lebanon.
