Bulgaria's capital Sofia is one of three new destinations featuring on low-cost airline Easyjet's new schedule from Stansted next year.

The carrier will serve the flights to Sofia twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with the first due on February 16.

The budget airline will also add year-round flights to Egypt and Morocco.

"We're delighted to add Sharm el-Sheikh and Sofia to our scheduled route network for the first time and as well as seeing a welcome return of Marrakech as we believe there is a real and significant demand for flights to these destinations," Nick Barton, Stansted's managing director, commented.

"I'm sure these exciting new routes will prove to be very popular with passengers and a great addition to our route network," he added.

EasyJet, which is considered to be the second-biggest low fare airline company after Ryanair, stepped on the Bulgarian market in November 2007 with low-cost flights to London Gatwick three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
