According to their timetable the Tu-134 is still the sole plane used on a couple of routes. The Bae will replace it but for now it's still flying. Maybe one of their Tu-134s will be withdrawn while the other one is kept flying. The tu-134 is indeed my favorite plane and it will be sad if it goes. I think it could've kept going a couple more years.

This is good news? I dont know! The Tupolev is a nice, fast, Russian-buily plane, but the 146 is it a suitable replacement? The 134's are nice, very nice, but will they withstand the test of management?
Even though, good news for the Bulgarian airline that they are expanding one way or another and hopefully will, one day fly direct YYZ-SOF like Balkan!!

the actual plane is Bulgaria Air B737. Hemus Air uses Bulgaria Air B737 to fly to Beirut. They do it under Hemus Air code share. As for Bexx Air http://www.fly-bexx.com, they are something like a travel agency that uses Hemus Air, Balkan Holidays (BHAir), and others.

I'm not sure why Hemus Air uses Bulgaria Air's 737. Maybe they need bigger plane to Beirut.
wait until the low cost airlines come to Bulgaria. It will be interesting.
Hemus Air has some kind of cooperation with the Albanians. I believe I few years ago, Hemus Air pilots operated the whole Albanian fleet for certain period of time. I think it was because of Kosovo or something like that.
