“Today’s announcement is great news for Bulgaria. By expanding our Sofia fleet, we create more travel options and a greater choice of destinations in Italy, Germany and Switzerland. The new services from Sofia offer a perfect opportunity to visit the Italian beaches or enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Alps in Switzerland and Germany at truly affordable fares combined with an excellent travel experience. This is expected to create more local jobs as well as further stimulate tourism in Bulgaria by attracting more business from these countries.”
