BH Air - Balkan Holidays Air (8H, Sofia) has applied to the Department of Transportation for US traffic rights. According to CEO Yanko Ivanov, the airline wishes to offer a 3x weekly service to unspecified destinations in the United States beginning in either April or May.

"We have the full support of the state," Ivanov told Bulgaria's 24 Chasa Daily.

The US Federal Aviation Administration raised Bulgaria's safety rating from Category 2 to Category 1 in 2008, thereby permitting Bulgarian airlines to operate direct flights to the US using their own aircraft.

A branch of tour operator Balkan Holidays International, BH Air offers charter flights to the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Germany, Israel and Switzerland, as well as ad-hoc charters to other destinations, using its fleet of two A319-100s and three A320-200s.

BH Air - Balkan Holidays Air (8H, Sofia) is planning to start its first scheduled flights to the United States in spring next year using its sole widebody aircraft, an A330-200, LZ-AWA (cn 255). In an interview with the 24 Chasa newspaper, airline managing director Ianko Ivanov said initial services would include 4x weekly flights from Sofia to New York JFK and Chicago O'Hare though this is dependent on all requisite permits being secured. The launch would mark the first time a Bulgarian scheduled carrier has served the United States since the collapse of Balkan Bulgarian Airlines (LZ, Sofia) in 2002.
BH Air is also considering partnering Greek operator, Skygreece Airlines (GW, Athens Int'l), with plans to tap into demand for travel to the US in the Romanian, Serbian, Macedonian, Greek and Albanian markets.
