SOFIA (Bulgaria), Feb. 16 (SeeNews) – Total passenger traffic at Bulgaria’s Varna and Burgas airports increased to 58,449 in January from 22,177 in the same month of 2021, the German Fraport group, which operates the two coastal airports, said .

“In January 2022, the Fraport Group airports worldwide continued to record a positive passenger development.

Cargo handling at the two airports fell by 73% year-on-year to 138 tons in the reporting month. The number of aircraft take-offs and landings rose to 652 in January from 324 a year earlier.

Burgas and Varna airports are operated by Fraport Twin Star Airport Management under a 35-year concession contract awarded in 2006. Fraport Twin Star Airport Management is a 60/40 joint venture between Fraport and the Bulgarian company BM Star.

In the rest of Southeast Europe, the Fraport Group operates the airport in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, as well as 14 airports in Greece. The group also operates an airport in Antalya, Turkey.
