The company has an excellent service with bottle of water and sandwich plus coffee offer with your flight ticket. I really enjoy Bulgaria Air for two reasons, operating from the new Terminal in Sofia and flight time arrival or departure are convenient to enjoy until the last moment your holiday or business trip. Thank you

I have nothing bad to say about the flight. But I cannot also recommend it. The service was ok. Leg space is small but not unusual to economy. Sandwiches were provided free of charge with soft drink.

I often travelled with Bulgaria Air. It is a good company, as you enter the airplane you have a bottle of water. They also offer a sandwich, a chocolate bar and something to drink during the flight. Nothing to envy to Alitalia. Recommended.

Sofia airport is smallish but the departure proceedings were smooth. The public address system sounds like a lady who has been smoking cigars all her life! Good luck following what she is saying. Our flight wasn’t listed on a gate until after scheduled departure time. There was some problem with the computer at the desk. Finally a bus arrived to...

Gate announcement was really poor as well, flight was not full, more like 2/3, arrival at Sofia we deplaned to bus to terminal, and baggage despite special handling tags and...

This is somehow worst than any low cost company. I need to fly between Portugal and Bulgaria around 10 times a year, and i have never departed on time. Usually with delays between 10min to 1h40min. Also I don't know why there is no online check in availeble but okay. Another issue, is that i have paid at least twice...
