There are airports providing low cost flights between the UK and Bulgaria in all parts of the country.
There are flights from all of London’s and Glasgow’s airports, East Midlands, Manchester, Newcastle, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Sheffield/Doncaster, Birmingham, Bristol, Norwich and Belfast International. This geographical spread means that people in the UK can access a Bulgarian flight quite easily.
One native provider of flights between the two countries is Bulgaria Air. This Bulgarian airline has flights between Heathrow and Sofia and Gatwick and Varna. Flights include a complimentary meal and drinks and free baggage check-in. Tickets can be booked online or over the phone.
EasyJet, arguably Britain’s most popular low cost airline, has regular flights to Bulgaria. EasyJet flies out from Gatwick and Manchester for Sofia. Flights from Gatwick are daily, while flights are on Tuesdays and Saturdays from Manchester. The number and frequency of flights is likely to change during the peak-season so it worth checking with the EasyJet website when planning the journey and book in advance to avoid dissapointment.
The no-frills airline Ryanair has flights from Stansted to Plovdiv. People booking a flight on the company’s website can also book hotels and car hire as well.
Though not traditionally viewed as a low cost airline passengers may be able to secure cheap deals when flying out with British Airways. BA provide what they term ‘economy’ one way and return flights between London and Sofia, though availability and prices can change daily.
