The last charter flight to Bulgaria’s Southern Black Sea coast is scheduled for October 12. In August, charter flights were 78% less than charters in the same month in 2019, the Regional Tourism Chamber in Burgas reports, quoted by BNR Burgas. According to data of Bulgarian hoteliers, only 2% of all cancelled holidays this season have been rebooked for the summer of 2021. Weekend holidays along the Black Sea coast have not solved the financial problems of Bulgaria’s tourism. In August, the largest number of foreign tourist visits at the Southern Black Sea coast was from Poland- over 30,000. The number of English tourists visiting the Black Sea coast decreased with 93%. In July and August, 651,000 Bulgarian tourists visited the Black Sea coast. However, their stay at the seacoast was short. The tourism sector insists that the 80/20 wage support scheme be extended until the next tourist season.
