SOFIA, September 11 (Itar-Tass) — A government plane of the Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov with 80 Russian tourists onboard left the Bulgarian town of Burgas for Moscow late on Saturday. Most passengers are women with small children and old people, Ivailo Moskovski, the Bulgarian minister for transport, IT and communications, said in an interview with the Focus news agency.
In the meantime, the Bulgaria Air carrier and the Alma Tour Company failed to solve their dispute and reach an agreement on Saturday. The sides put off negotiations until September 12 (Monday). Alma Tour owes five million dollars to Bulgaria Air.
Only the passengers of two charter flights, 633 and 631, managed to leave Burgas for Moscow, on Saturday, the Russian General Consulate in Varna reports.
Russian Vice-Consul Galina Petrovskaya told Itar-Tass that the stranded Russian tourists in Varna had been provided with accommodation in four-star hotels in a resort village of Solnechnyi Bereg while in Burgas they are staying at the Bulgaria hotel.
Flight 633 that was postponed last Friday was the only one to leave Burgas for Moscow on Saturday. “Since many passengers have found alternative ways of returning home, the plane also took on passengers from flight 631,” Petrovskaya went on to say.
Bulgarian Transport Minister Ivailo Moskovski and Minister of Economy, Energy and Tourism Traicho Traikov are in Burgas to settle the dispute between Bulgaria Air and Alma Tour.
