Ryanair has announced plans to base its fourth aircraft at Sofia Airport and introduce flights to five new destinations this summer season.

The airline's expansion will see the addition of routes to Valencia, Alicante, Bristol, Copenhagen, and Skiathos, bringing the total number of destinations served by Ryanair from Sofia to 40.

The decision to invest further in Bulgaria was revealed during a joint briefing by Jesus Caballero, CEO of SOF Connect, the airport's concessionaire, and Alicja Wojcik-Golebiowska, Ryanair's Manager for Central and Eastern Europe, as reported by BTA.
