SOFIA, July 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Bulgarian authorities re-opened the Safarovo international airport in Burgas on Thursday evening. The airport was closed after a bus with a group of Israeli tourists exploded at a parking place outside the airport on Wednesday.
All flights bound for Safarovo had been re-directed to Varna over the past 24 hours where extra security precautions were taken.
Security officers are carefully checking all the passengers arriving in Safarovo, including EU nationals. The airport is working in a regime of high terrorist alert, and the airport authorities are recommending passengers to arrive in Safarovo at least two hours before the flight.
The Burgas air harbor was closed at 17:30 local time (18:30 Moscow time) on Wednesday after an unknown suicide bomber had blown up a bus with Israeli tourists at the local car park. The blast killed seven people.
