New budget Bulgarian service

Travellers looking for cheap flights to Eastern Europe are to get a boost with the launch of two new services from London to Bulgaria.

Wizz Air will begin operating flights from Luton Airport to the Bulgarian capital Sofia four times weekly, as well as flights from Luton to Bourgas three times a week, from May 1.

The new flights, which will cost as little as £42.46 including taxes and fees, were announced at a press conference at the Radisson Hotel Sofia last week, bulgaria-property.com reports.

Bulgaria is proving a popular choice amongst Britons looking for a second home, and UK-based property companies have also moved quickly to develop in the country.

James Knight, director of property firm Knight International, congratulated Wizz Air’s decision saying the ‘UK and Bulgaria have grown ever closer today’.

Wizz Air is the first low-cost airline to offer flights from the UK to Bulgaria. The budget carrier enjoyed a three-fold increase in passenger numbers in 2005 and believes it will become the largest airline in Central and Eastern Europe within two years.

Flight times:

Luton to Sofia
Departs 6.30am, arrives 7.45am (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday)

Sofia to Luton
Departs 7.55pm, arrives 1.00am next day (Saturday)
Departs 8.20pm, arrives 1.20am next day (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)

Luton to Bourgas
Departs 4.40am, arrives 6.15am (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
