The airline has also recently introduced an in-flight magazine for passengers as part of its mission to make Bulgarian airlines flights as comfortable as possible. For flights into Bulgaria, the food service has recently been upgraded to include more authentic Bulgarian dishes accompanied by regional wines for business and first class passengers.

The airline currently has three Boeing 737s for their intercontinental flights, and has recently put in an order for seven more aircraft to expand its 16 strong fleet. This will give them an extra 700-passenger capacity each week, which the company will use to expand their flight options to Western Europe and America. To complement this, Air Bulgaria has offices in most capital cities in Europe and major cities in North America.
