State-owned Greek train operator Trainose will re-launch on May 10 a passenger train connecting the Bulgarian capital Sofia with Thessaloniki, the Bulgarian National Radio reported.
The service, discontinued three years over funding issues, will be available once daily in each direction, the broadcaster reported.
The Greek train operator also plans to start passenger train services to Skopje and Belgrade, BNR added.
The company suspended services linking Thessaloniki to the Balkan capitals in February 2011, the Athens News Agency-Macedonian Press Agency said. TrainOSE's decision to relaunch international trains is due to the improved economic situation of the company after having redefined its strategic options, it added.
