Some news here from Novinite.

Bulgaria Reopens Revamped Varna Airport
Bulgaria's Varna Airport on the Black Sea coast reopens Wednesday, February 29, 2012, with the first regular flight arriving from Vienna, Austria.

The airport resumes serving passengers and flights after it was closed in October 2011 for rehabilitation of its runway.

Since the fall of 2011, concessionaire Fraport Twin Star Airport Management has invested BGN 40 M to improve the runway of the Varna Airport.

In November 2011, Fraport Twin Star Airport Management signed the contract for the construction of the new terminals with the selected constructor, Turkish consortium TIE-ICDAS.

The construction of the two passenger terminals is estimated to cost the concessionaire a total of BGN 130 M.

As early as July 2011, the concessionaire of the Bulgarian Black Sea airports Varna and Burgas Fraport Twin Star Airport Management announced plans to invest BGN 170 M in their modernization in the next 3 years.

Fraport Twin Star CEO Dirk Schusdziara explained that BGN 40 M will poured in the overhaul of the Varna Airport runway, and the rest will go for the construction of the new passenger terminals.

During modernization projects at Varna Airport and Burgas Airport in the next three years, the company will create 1 500 new jobs, he said.

The runway has been repaved with 30-cm thick asphalt cover, and has new draining system, new lighting and markings. All renovations have been completed on time and on schedule.

The test flights began on January 19, 2012.
