SOFIA, September 14 (Itar-Tass) —— All Russian tourists stuck in Bulgaria’s Varna and Burgas airports since Friday will be taken to St. Petersburg by a Bulgaria Air flight later on Wednesday, Russian consul general in Varna Yuri Solovyov told Itar-Tass.
“In the evening, some time from 18:00 and 20:00 local time (19:00 – 20:00 Moscow time), a plane with Russian tourists is to take off for St. Petersburg, the Russian diplomat said. “Now Russians are being taken by busses to the Varna airport from Burgas and other neighbouring resort localities.”
According to reports coming from Bulgaria, the country’s national air carrier, Bulgaria Air, and Alma Tour have finally reached a compromise and organized a flight to take Russian tourist back home.
Earlier, Bulgarian Economics and Energy Minister Traicho Traikov threatened Bulgaria Air to revoke its license to service Russian destinations if it fails to remedy the situation before Friday.
Bulgaria Air blocked charter flights of Russian tourists from Burgas and Varna on Friday and Saturday because of Alma Tour debts of about five million U.S. dollars.
