The Bulgarian Ministry for Tourism has begun talks with a Danish company over the possible introduction of flights from Plovdiv to Zagreb and several other cities in the region. The Ministry said it is part of the city's attempt to position itself as year-long destination. Plovdiv is Bulgaria's second largest city, however, its airport is mostly served by carriers on a seasonal summer basis. This will change during the winter of 2017/18 with Ryanair to launch several new routes. Zagreb currently has no air links with Bulgaria.
