Zara Rutherford, 19, landed at Sofia Airport on her ultralight plane. The Bulgarian capital is one of Zara’s stops in her attempt to beat the world record for the youngest woman to fly around the world all by herself. So far the young girl has flown through more than 50 airports around the world, with a few more stops to go before she “closes” her round the world tour in Belgium in a few days.
At Sofia Airport Zara was greeted by Christian Stoschek – Chief Transformation Officer and Executive Director Ground Handling of SOF Connect: “I would like to congratulate Zara, who is so brave and adventurous, and wish her well in her pursuit of a record. We are delighted that she has chosen Sofia Airport as a stop on her journey. As you can see, the capital’s airport is a place where people follow their dreams, celebrate and big things happen. We welcome all who want to visit unknown places made possible through our wide range of destinations.”
“Sofia Airport is one of the most welcoming airports I have landed at. Here I received the one of the warmest welcomes during my entire journey,” said Zara Rutherford at the press conference held at Terminal 2.
