Jumbo Jet, one of the largest airliners currently in service, brought on its wings to Burgas airport 470 holidaymakers from Moscow on June 5.
This is the first time that tourists, travelling from Moscow to Bulgaria's Southern Black Sea coast this summer, have the opportunity to enjoy the comfort of a Boeing 747, commonly called the Jumbo Jet.
The plane is owned by the Russian airline company Transaero, the first Russian airline to operate western aircraft.
It will fly every Monday from Moscow to Burgas airport on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, whose airport is the only one large enough to welcome a Jumbo Jet.
