Flight Cancellation Warning

I have been speaking Balkania travel, a Bulgarian specialist travel agent today, and Vanya there explained how how EasyJet, Bulgaria Air and BA have been consolidating flights to Bulgaria (Varna and Sofia from the UK in particular). This problem can be made much worse by under booked flights being cancelled at very short notice.

Last year EasyJet did this in attempt to avoid flying a loss making flight. I advise always checking on your flight departure a few days before scheduled flight to see if it is still flying. It is perfectly within an airlines right to change your flight without compensation.

My suggestion, for November flights in particular, is to consider Bulgaria Air first. If you are taking a bag and have a glass of wine on board there is often very little difference between the low cost airlines and BA and Bulgaria Air. And of course you arrive at Terminal 2 in Sofia — which exudes a air of calm — in a clinical sort of way. Of course this is only relevant if you are near London.

Talking of which, speculation is rife that Ryanair are looking to fill the void of no direct Dublin flight. This will be a huge boost for visitors from all of Ireland.

Sofia So Good

So there we have it — now’s the time to book your trip. Bansko is gearing up for the season ahead… but recession or no recession, there is nothing like getting out into the mountains for fresh air.

Or a pre Christmas trip to Sofia for spa, shopping and a good night out out. Tip: try my favourite piano bar in Sofia, Sinatras. Sofia is in many respect my favourite European city, and one which like so much in Bulgaria, only reveals its varied pleasures after some perseverance, some research or a local guide.

More Flight Offers

We will most likely see a similar offer announced soon from Bulgaria Air and possibly BA, so well worth registering with the airlines to get the offers emailed as they are launched.

If you hear anything on flights to Sofia — or have experienced problems with flight cancellations, consolidations or diversions then please let us know.
