Bulgaria Air launches new route to Budapest from Sofia
Bulgaria Air launched a new route between the capitals of Bulgaria and Hungary on 9 July. From its Sofia (SOF) base, the airline now flies three times a week to Budapest (BUD). The airline uses a mixture of BAe 146 and E-190 aircraft on the route. Competition comes from the Wizz Air’s also three weekly flights, although the low-cost airline operates on different days of the week. Prior to suspending operations earlier this year, Malev operated the route alone with nine weekly frequencies.
