Bookings are up for holidays to Bulgaria from Cardiff Airport this Summer

Leading tour operator Balkan Holidays says bookings for package holidays to Bulgaria flying from Cardiff Airport are up 10% this summer compared with last year.

To cope with demand from Welsh holidaymakers, the tour operator has added a second flight departing from the airport on Thursdays until September. This is in addition to the Sunday charter flight departure, enabling Welsh holidaymakers to extend a traditional seven day break to ten days if they wish, when making a booking this summer.

Balkan Holidays is offering great value for money prices - for example a one-week holiday starts from £335 per person flying on 26 July from Cardiff Airport and staying in three star accommodation in Sunny Beach. Ten nights at the three star Hotel Smolyan in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria, utilising the new Thursday flight from Cardiff on 2 August, costs £434 per person. Prices include return flights and transfers to the resort.

Bulgaria’s non-Euro status means eating out and everyday holiday staples in Bulgaria are also tremendous value for money.

In addition Sunny Beach, the leading resort on the Black Sea, regularly tops the Post Office Travel Money Holidays Costs Barometer compared with other holiday destinations in Europe. Other popular resorts including Nessebar and Pomorie also boast hours of sunshine, warm sea temperatures, several Blue Flag beaches and plenty of family activities.

This summer Balkan Holidays is offering:

  • 7, 10 and 14 night package holidays
  • Two charter flights departing Cardiff for Bourgas, Bulgaria, on Sundays until the end of September and Thursdays from 19 July until 20 September
  • 20kg per person luggage allowance, return flights and airport transfers included in package holidays  

“Cardiff is an important departure airport for us and we are pleased to see this increase in bookings for the summer.” said Chris Rand, Sales and Marketing Manager Balkan Holidays.

Spencer Birns, Commercial Director at Cardiff Airport, added: “As we head into the school summer holidays, we look forward to welcoming families jetting off for a sunny break in Bulgaria.

“It’s excellent to see Balkan Holidays offering our customers an even better choice of holidays with 7, 10 or 14 day package options at a number of popular resorts, with excellent value for money.”
