In the interest of the safety and health of passengers, the wearing of protective masks during the flight with Bulgaria Air remains mandatory for all. For maximum protection, the airline's aircraft are disinfected with both special detergents and ultraviolet (UV) rays through the HoneywellUV Cabin System II. The technology has been proven to destroy all viruses and bacteria from smooth surfaces.
The air quality in the aircraft is guaranteed by special HEPA filtering systems, which ensure constant circulation of heat-treated air up to over 200 degrees, limiting the possible spread of any contamination by air.
