The easyJet service between Edinburgh and Sofia is now in operation, opening up Bulgaria’s capital and biggest city to passengers.

The inaugural flight last month marked the beginning of the twice weekly service which operates on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport Gordon Dewar said: “The beginning of this route is another positive step for Scotland’s busiest airport as we add another city to our roster, which is already impressive. Sofia’s stunning scenery and slopes will cater for those looking for a city break as well as avid skiers, and easyJet have again shown foresight in working with us to provide this for passengers.”
