Bulgaria's Varna Airport to Be Shut Down for 4 Months

The airport in Bulgaria's Black Sea capital Varna will be closed down for unprecedented repairs after the end of the 2011 summer tourist season.

The Varna Airport will be undergoing repairs from October 15, 2011, till February 28, 2012, the Nadorno Delo daily reported. This is the first time the airport will be shut down since it was opened on May 9, 1948.

For the specified period all Varna Airport flights will be redirected to the Burgas Airport in the city of Burgas some 100 km to the south. The Varna Airport will provide free bus transport to the Burgas Airport for the duration of the repairs.

The Varna Airport management has already started to notify the air companies and tour operators about the planned temporary closure.

The local press points out that the shutting down of the airport in Varna will be especially unpleasant for the businesspeople who travel often between Sofia and Varna, because now their trips will be several hours longer if they have to resort to taking a bus or travelling by car.

The thorough repairs will focus on laying new asphalt on the tracks of the entire Varna Airport, replacing the drainage and light systems, and extending the runway by 5 meters.

The airports in Black Sea cities Varna and Burgas have been granted on concession to Fraport Twin Star Airport Management company, a German-Bulgarian consortium between the Varna-based TIM group's holding "
Chimimport"
(40%) and the German "
Fraport."


In 2010, Fraport Twin Star Airport Management paid the Bulgarian state a total of BGN 13 M for the concessions of the Varna Airport and the Burgas Airport.

This seems a little barmy to me only 5 meters what difference is that likely to make? and the cost to is huge for such a little extra space.
