easyJet announces expansion in Bulgaria and seven NEW routes
easyJet, Europe’s leading low-fares airline, today announced the addition of seven new routes this Autumn, including new connections to currently served destinations and the addition of Bulgaria to its network.

The introduction of the three times weekly service between London Gatwick and Sofia, which commences on 6 November, reflects the airline’s continued commitment to growth in Central Eastern Europe and follows the recent announcement that the airline will also enter the Romanian market as well as the introduction of routes to Gdansk in Poland.

The new Liverpool to Innsbruck service is great news for those wanting to ski in Austria this winter, whilst the Liverpool to Lisbon route will not only be popular for city breaks but will also provide a direct link for businesses between the two cities.

The details of the seven new routes easyJet announced today is as follows:

ROUTE STARTS FREQUENCY FARES one way / return inc taxes
Gatwick-Sofia 06-Nov "3 weekly(Tue,Thu,Sat)" £27.99/£50.98
Liverpool–Innsbruck 08-Jan "3 weekly(Tue,Thu,Sun)" £22.99/£45.98
Liverpool-Lisbon 02-Nov "4 weekly(Mon,Wed,Fri,Sat)" £20.99/£38.98

Basel-Marrakech 30-Oct "3 weekly(Tue,Thu,Sat)" CHF32.95/CHF77.90
Basel-Oporto 30-Oct "3 weekly(Tue,Thu,Sat)" CHF32.95/CHF65.90
Milan-Marrakech 06-Nov "3 weekly(Tue,Thu,Sat)" €18.99/45.98


SOFIA - The Bulgarian Capital of Sofia, the second oldest city in Europe founded 7000 years ago, is situated at the foothills of the Vitosha Mountains and played an important role as a trading centre in the Byzantine and Bulgarian Empires, it is now the hub of the country's political, business and cultural life. This unique compact city, with its tree lined boulevards and balconied 19th century Russian and Viennese buildings, is dominated by neo-classical Stalinist architecture. The city’s motto ‘Ever growing, never old,' is still very true today and you can get a taste of its ancient past by exploring its varied historical and cultural attractions including:

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral with its golden domes built in honour of the Russian Tsar Alexander 2nd; Boyana Church; National History Musuem housed in the stately Boyana Residence; National Gallery for Foreign Art; The Rotunda of St. George and National Opera House.

Sofia is a lively and vibrant city, famed for its party loving friendly locals who enjoy nothing more than meeting for coffee in open-air cafes throughout the day and socialising in the countless buzzing bars and cafes at night, particularly on Vitosha Boulevard where it is possible to party well in to the night.

Bulgaria’s accession to the EU in January 2007 has boosted its appeal as a tourist destination and is now one of the up and coming destinations for property investment. Sofia is also the perfect gateway for the Rila Mountains, the highest in South East Europe (2925m) and home to the most popular Bulgarian ski resort of Borovets and the Pirin Mountains, home to the ski and, soon to be, golfing resort of Bansko. As well as many of the celebrated spa towns such as Bankya, whose natural mineral springs are recommended for the treatment of cardiovascular and rheumatic diseases.

Fantastic for me and my crew that will save me approx £280 on our New years break....
Its a start and at least it shows that there is more competition on it way for BG skies.
Even for those nearer the coast it gives another cheap option if they don't mind a drive.
