Low-cost carrier easyJet has officially launched its flights from Bulgaria's capital Sofia to Berlin.
Peter Voets, easyJet's marketing manager for Switzerland, Austria and Eastern Europe, said that the strong business connections between the two capitals, as well as the fact that numerous Bulgarians work and study in Germany, will contribute to the new route's success.
Voets hopes that approximately 30 000 passengers will be serviced by the end of 2013.
The carrier will operate year-round flight four times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) from Sofia Airport to Berlin-Schonefeld Airport.
easyJet already services a total of 4 two-way flights to and from Bulgaria, including daily flights between Sofia Airport and London Gatwick, and flights between Sofia Airport and Manchester Airport.easyJet, considered to be the second-biggest low fare airline company after Ryanair, set foot on the Bulgarian market in November 2007 with low-cost flights to London Gatwick three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
