The reason is the growth of coronavirus patients in our country. “Such a measure means that within 24 hours all tour operators will complete their flight programs to Bulgaria and will pick up their tourists who are at sea,” Tanchev said. According to him, similar things have already happened in other tourist destinations.With the introduction of a ban on travel of German tourists to Bulgaria, the season will actually end, he added.
Alltours sent only about 1,200 Germans in July 2020. For comparison, for the same month last year, 18,000 tourists arrived in Bulgarian resorts through them. It is not possible to predict what will happen in August, commented Ventsislav Tanchev. According to him, this year there is great interest from German youth in Golden Sands and the ebb from Sunny Beach.
Currently, charter programs are implemented by Germany, Belgium, Poland and the Czech Republic. Cancellations have also started from Poland, Tanchev explained.
