HISTORY: TABSO was Bulgaria's government airline. In 1946, the Ministry of Transport and Communications formed an Administration of Air Communications (AAC). The Soviet forces stationed in Bulgaria took an interesting in the AAC and by late 1947 took it into joint ownership as had been done with all airlines of East-European countries formerly allied with Nazi Germany. The resulting airline was called TABSO, an acronym for Transportno Aviacionno Balgaro Savetsko Obedinenie (English: Bulgarian-Soviet Transport Aviation Corporation).
