Not Caused Cancellation of British Tourist Bookings for Bulgaria

Date: 28.08.2006

The sudden critical circumstances resulting from the terrorist threat against Britain and the United States have not caused any cancellations of British package tourist bookings for Bulgaria, Balkan Holidays Executive Director Antoaneta Todorova said on Friday, quoted by the Press Office of the National Tourism Board (NTB). She believes that a better assessment of the effect of the threat on tourism can be made after the situation normalizes.

Sofia Airport Executive Director Plamen Stanchev said the situation at the Airport is normal and under control. Security services strictly follow the guidelines given by carriers British Airways, Bulgaria Air and Hemus Air. According to Stanchev, airline operators make timely decisions and advise passengers of any flight changes in due course, thus avoiding unnecessary tension at Sofia Airport.

The NTB will stay in touch with the World Tourism Organization in order to Bulgarian travel companies about measures to offset the effect of the crisis in the most seriously affected travel destinations.

The NTB has sent a letter to British Ambassador to Bulgaria Jeremy Hill, saying that its members share the concern of Britons over the London events and over the inconvenience they have caused to travellers, and support the measures taken to prevent terrorist acts. The organization expressed its readiness to help overcome the crisis situation and to ensure the comfort of British tourists coming to Bulgaria and Bulgarian tourists visiting Britain.
