Safety is no accident – it must be planned
Our history
Founded in 2001 by Captain Ianko Ivanov as a new Bulgarian Air company - BH Air.
BH Air is a private charter airline with main base in Sofia. In the summer the company operates flights from Bourgas and Varna airports to the UK, Scandinavia, Italy and other European countries. Also flights to Africa, Asia and the Middle East are operated for groups travelling in connection with cultural and sports events and on business.
One of the company’s most staggering experiences is its 2005 wet lease agreement with Virgin Atlantic, under which it launched the operation of Virgin Nigeria’s short and medium haul domestic and international flights from Lagos. The same project has been implemented in Sri Lanka, serving as the frame of the new national carrier, Mihin Lanka Airways.
Furthermore BH Air provides wet lease operations to several airlines.

Currently, the BH Air fleet comprises  three A-320, V2500 25/27 A5 powered aircraft. 
The company’s portfolio also consists of Gulfstream G200 and Gulfstream G550 executive jet aircrafts which successfully operate VIP flights.
The airframe base maintenance, components and engines off-wing maintenance are contracted to third parties complying with the Commission Regulation (EC) №.2042/2003, such as, but not limited to, Lufthansa Technic, TAP Maintenance & Engineering, AJ Walter Aviation and Rolls-Royce. Along with these European partners, BH Air values its business relations with Airbus Industries, CFM International, GECAS, Pratt & Whitney, Air Canada, GAMCO and with the strategic maintenance providers in the region – Turkish Airlines Technic and MNG Technic.

BH Air is structured around a team of dedicated professionals who are steadily building the company’s reputation of being totally committed to its customers and passengers, thus maintaining exclusive safety standards and outstanding customer service – Service Excellence. The airline currently employs a staff of 250 (herein 150 flight deck and cabin crew) committed to our vision to deliver sustained performance, service and growth.
Since its first flight in February 2002, BH Air has been focusing on the development of a genuine 21st Century air company that will have the power to redefine the aviation standards in Bulgaria. It has always been led by innovation and forward thinking and that is one of the secrets of BH Air’s amazing success story.
BH AIR provides its passengers with comfort, safety and remarkable service on board.
