Crowds of Foreign Tourists Invade Bulgaria's Burgas AirportNovinite.com, 30 May 2007
Bulgaria's Burgas Airport staff was really surprised Tuesday when 8000 foreign tourists flooded the airport grounds, Bulgarian National TV Channel reported.
A total of 8000 Scandinavians, Germans and Britons stepped on Bulgarian land and the airport expects another 10 000 to land by midnight on Tuesday. Airport staff had to attend 113 charter flights in a single day, which is a record number for the month of May.
The tourist "attack" started around 10 in the morning when the first 10 aircrafts landed, carrying Finnish tourists.
The second tourists wave will be in the evening when in just two hours 60 planes will land, carrying 10 000 foreigners aboard.
The Burgas Airport staff said this was a real surprise as the airport is a small one.
