Lisbon Airport welcomed the arrival of its latest carrier Bulgaria Air with a traditional route launch cake. The airport also welcomed the first passengers with dancers wearing illuminated dresses. Services between the Bulgarian and Portuguese capitals will be served weekly (Thursdays) onboard the carrier’s fleet of A320s according to OAG Schedules Analyser data.
- Bulgaria Air launched two services from its Sofia (SOF) base between 28 and 30 April, starting on the former date with a connection to Lisbon (LIS). The 2,757-kilometre sector will be served by the carrier weekly (Thursdays) onboard the airline’s A320 fleet. The second launch on the latter date was to Alicante (ALC), a 2,704-kilometre sector which will also be served weekly (Saturdays) onboard a mixture of the airline’s A319 and E190 fleets according to OAG Schedules Analyser data. Although services to Lisbon will face no incumbent carrier, flights to Alicante will compete with Wizz Air which operates twice-weekly services.
