Moreover, thanks also to the interline commercial agreement, Bulgaria Air’s passengers will benefit from single tickets for travel between Bulgaria and Air Italy’s US, Canada and Africa destinations operated from Malpensa: Miami, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco (both from April), Toronto (from May), Cairo, Dakar, Accra and Lagos.

Air Italy Chief Operating Officer, Rossen Dimitrov, said: “The commencement of our partnership with Bulgaria Air is great news for passengers of both airlines. Our customers can now benefit from a new choice for connecting to Bulgaria via Milan Malpensa, from our seven key Italian destinations. Meanwhile, we are delighted to be welcoming Bulgaria Air’s passengers on board our new Air Italy flights from Milan Malpensa to Rome, Naples, Palermo, Catania, Lamezia Terme, Cagliari and Olbia.

“We are also very proud to be welcoming Bulgaria Air’s passengers traveling from Sofia, Varna and Burgas on board our new Air Italy intercontinental flights from Milan Malpensa to the US and Canada as they will experience our extremely comfortable widebody long-haul Airbus A330-200 and our new Business and Economy Class on board services.”

“It is a great pleasure to announce the new codeshare agreement which is only a step towards Bulgaria Air’s goal to offer passengers the opportunity to travel intercontinentally and connect Bulgarians all over the world. Our urge is to continually expand our portfolio of destinations and we are very happy that we have found a partner such as Air Italy who had already proven to be a responsible, innovative and progressive air career. Thanks to this partnership the passengers from the United States, Canada, Italy and Bulgaria can benefit and enjoy the same high quality and comfortable flights as always and reach numerous new destinations.
