Austrian Airlines launched a new route from Vienna to the Bulgarian Black Sea port city of Burgas on Tuesday, making it the third city it flies to in Bulgaria.
The airline will operate three afternoon flights a week - on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
"With flights to Burgas and Varna, Austrian Airlines now have a national reach, which guarantees both our business clients and tourists the best transit option," said the airline's director for central and eastern Europe, Wolfgang Grimus.
The round trip fare for the flights linking Burgas, Varna and Sofia to Vienna is EUR 169, plus airport fees.
The Austrian capital is one of the top destinations for Bulgarians flying out of the country. Last year, more than 130,000 people flew to Vienna, including 60% who used it as a transit point, according to Austrian Airlines data.
