Fraport Twin Star Management, the operator of Varna and Burgas airports in Bulgaria, has announced that passenger traffic for the first nine months of 2016 reached 4.4 million travelers, a 22.5% increase when compared with the same period in 2015.
The increase has been predominantly attributed to a 21% rise in traffic between the months of June and August, when the airports served a combined 3.3 million passengers.
Ulrich Heppe, CEO of Fraport Twin Star Management, said, “We have made a real breakthrough this summer and intend to continue building on this stellar performance at the Twin Star airports. In cooperation with our partners in the travel chain, we are working hard to develop Varna and Burgas as popular gateways to Bulgaria’s leading tourism region.
“There is so much to discover and enjoy, from seaside ambiance, cuisine, Bulgarian wines, wellness and golf resorts, to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, international events and festivals, and of course, the stunning beauty of the Black Sea coastline.”
