Bulgarian air carriers demand state aid

The Bulgarian Aviation Industry Association warned again that this country’s civil aviation sector is in a critical condition. Representatives of the Bulgarian Aviation Industry Association met with Bulgaria’s caretaker Minister of Transport Georgi Todorov. In their view, quick actions are needed to save the charter season. Bulgarian airlines carry out 70-80% of charter flights in tourism, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, they are left without revenues.

In a letter to the institutions and the media, aviation experts demand an emergency grant to the tune of 20% of the sector's turnover for 2018 and 2019. According to Eurocontrol, the number of regular flights decreased by 65% in 2020.
