Greek investors are considering launching a direct air line between the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv and the Greek town of Kavala on the Aegean Sea coast.
The idea for the Plovdiv-Kavala line has been discussed for several months and was confirmed over the weekend during an aviation show in Kavala, the Maritsa newspaper reported.
By setting up a direct air line, Greek businesspeople are said to be aiming at increasing the number of Bulgarian tourists from Plovdiv.
The Greek project is about to be discussed by the local authorities in the two cities.
The distance between Plovdiv and Kavala is about 330 km.
