MOSCOW, September 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s 200 tourists, who failed to fly back home from airports of Burgas and Varna, remain in Bulgaria, Rostourism’s Head of Press Service Oleg Moseyev said on Sunday.
“According to the latest information we have, 200 Russian tourists remain in Bulgaria: in Burgas’ airport – 120 organised tourists, who have come from St. Petersburg, and in Varna – 80 tourists from St. Petersburg and from Moscow,” he said. “They are fine, all tourists are in hotels, they do not experience problems with food, there is no panic, but still they worry about flying back.”
All tourists are expected to be returned home on Monday, September 12, Moseyev said.
“We hope the aviation company and the tourist operator would settle the issue between themselves, and we would like to address our operators and aviation companies to assist in settlement of the problem with the tourists,” he added.
Flights from Bulgaria’s airports in Burgas and Varna were delayed due to the financial dispute between the aviation company and tourist operator, who still fail to agree on resuming chartered flights. About 900 Russians became hostages to the dispute. The latter group of 260 tourists returned home on Saturday by a flight operated by Bulgarian Airlines.
