HI EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!
I HAVE JUST FOUND THAT AIR SOFIA HAVE RECIEVED A BOEING 737-800 WITH WINGLETS, WHICH IS BASED AT SOFIA, BULGARIA AND IS STARTING WEEKLY FLIGHTS TO DUBAI!!!!! PHOTOS AND MORE INFO@ http://sofiaholidays.com/gallery/
DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE AIRLINE IS TO START OTHER PASSENGER ROUTES, OR EXPAND THIS PASSENGER FLLET??

I HAVE ALSO NOTICED THAT A NORWEGIAN AIRLINE GUARD AIR HAS STARTED FLIGHTS FROM ALL OVER EUROPE TO SOFIA. I CANT FIND PICTURES OR INFO ON THEM AT ALL. R THEY LOW COST AIRLINE? WHAT FLEET DO THEY HAVE. WHY HAVE THEY COMENCED SO MANY SERVICES TO SOFIA?? IS THE FLIGHT FROM LONDON-SOFIA AN ONWARD EXTENSION?????
FILL ME WITH KNOWLEDGE.....!!

The aircraft is or was one of Pegasus Airlines (Turkey Charter Operator based in Istanbul) initially leased through GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS).

My best bet is that the aircraft it's on a wet sub-lease to Air Sofia which clearly decided to have their own shot at the Bulgarian charter market.

Otherwise Air Sofia it's a Bulgarian cargo operator, still flying Russian An-12, AN-12, IL-76, AN-26, AN-124

From what I know they are operating on behalf of Air Algérie, Air Sofia, Khalifa Airways and Oman Air at the moment.
