Sofia News Agency has announced Turkish Airlines plans to resume flights to and from Sofia, Bulgaria on July 1, the company said.
In July, the carrier will operate a total of 5 flights a week from the Bulgarian capital. Earlier this month, Turkish Airlines re-launched a number of its international routes, starting with those to and from the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, the US and the Far East. This comes after a break of more than two months, introduced as part of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
With the resumption of its flights, Turkish Airlines announced new guidelines for safe travel, as well as two new services in order to maximize the health of its passengers. The airline also offers travelers free hygiene kits, including a face mask, disinfectant and antiseptic wipe, and hygiene experts have been appointed as part of the crew to ensure that all safety measures, including social distance, are observed on board.
Turkish Airlines aircraft are completely disinfected before each flight. Hygiene on board is guaranteed, as all points on the aircraft that people come into contact with are thoroughly cleaned with chemicals that are safe for human health and through methods whose effectiveness has been scientifically proven.
