After Malev airlines stopped operating many airlines were in a hurry to grab more market shares. Sofia airport proved to be a major European airport and many airlines want to service flights to Sofia.

Bulgaria air start new destination from Sofia to Prague from 26 March 2012. Bulgarian airline  will operate six weekly flights (except Saturday). The airline will keep it’s code-share agreement with CSA. Ticket prices will start from 172 euro both directions.

Bulgaria air will resume four daily domestic flights from Sofia to Varna canceled due to runway repair works at Varna airport. Ticket prices start from 62 euro round trip.

Russian and Bulgarian civil aviation authorities have agreed to double frequencies on Burgas (BOJ)–Moscow and Varna (VAR)–Moscow routes.

Russian authorities have allowed Bulgaria air  to launch Moscow Sheremetyevo (SVO)-Varna (VAR)- Burgas BOJ service from June 1 to Sept. 1. This summer, other carriers will not have to submit their flights to these destinations for approval, according to the Russian Ministry of Transport. This requirement, which became effective in 2010, has become an obstacle for FB, which wanted to launch charter flights from Burgas and Varna to Novosibirsk (OVB). S7 was a designated carrier on these routes and did not permit FB to operate charter flights.
