Bulgaria’s Burgas Airport will be closed until March 27. The reason is planned construction and repair activities related to the airport runways major overhaul. 

All planned flights during the repair works will be cancelled or redirected to Varna Airport, BTA reported.

The airport’s overhaul is carried out before the beginning of the summer tourist season, which this year will start later for the Burgas airport. The first charter flights are expected only in June, as so far the highest number of bookings are from the UK. In the summer Burgas Airport will offer direct flights to nine cities in the UK. 

There is also growing interest in Bulgaria’s southern Black Sea coast from holidaymakers in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria.
