Irish Low-Fare Airline Steps in Bulgaria

Date: 15.12.2006

Irish low fares airline Ryanair is preparing to open destinations to Bulgaria's second largest city of Plovdiv.

The company, headquartered in Dublin, will connect the southern Bulgarian city with airports in the UK, Spain and Germany, following the densest Bulgarian emigrant populaces in Europe.

Sofia Airport is also negotiating with Ryanair, as well as with British no-frills airline EasyJet, according to local press reports.

Ryanair is one of Europe's largest low-cost carriers and one of Europe's most successful airlines, operating on 362 routes to 22 countries. Ryanair has been characterized by rapid expansion, a result of the deregulation of the air industry in Europe in 1997.

In 2002 Ryanair launched 26 new routes and established a hub in Frankfurt-Hahn Airport.

In 2003, Ryanair announced the order of a further 100 new Boeing 737-800 series aircraft from Boeing, and in February a third continental base was opened at Milan-Bergamo in Italy.

Currently Ryanair operates 12 European hubs, another ten new hubs they intend to establish over the next seven years.
