According to the news at Bulgaria’s Novinite news agency, Turkish Airlines is considering direct flights to Varna from Istanbul after a meeting of Varna Mayor Ivan Portnih and Cenk Ocal, head of Turkish Airlines for Bulgaria.
The Turkish air carrier plans to conduct the direct flights year-round 4 times a week.
Ocal explained that Turkish Airlines would promote the direct flight to Varna for free not only in Turkey but in all of the countries where it functioned.
He vowed that all inflight magazines of the company would provide information about Varna and all major cultural, sports and other events taking place in the Black Sea city.
