Airports in Varna and Burgas Add New Destinations
Six new year-long lines will be opened from Varna Airport this summer. New direct flights begin in July and will be from and to Paris, Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Copenhagen and Liverpool. This was announced today by the chief executive of Fraport Twin Star Airport Management AD Ulrich Heppe.
According to him, the forecast for this summer season is for a slight decrease of about 8% in the airport activity. According to him, however, the market will be normalized as the 50% growth has been achieved in the last five years. The two most expected flights are Russian - 31%, and German - 14%.
According to Heppe, the reason for the withdrawal of the Russians is that they are shifting to Turkey, and Germany - the bankruptcy of one of the major airlines.
He also believes that losses will be offset by an increase in flights from other destinations, with a 34% growth expected from the UK. An increase of about 9% will be on flights from the Czech Republic, and from Turkey and Austria - by 11%.
This summer, 2.1 million passengers are expected to pass through the airport.
