Leisure airline Condor celebrated its first flight from Munich to Varna (VAR) on Sunday. As a new destination in summer 2016, the Bulgarian seaport will be flown to every Sunday. The Airbus A320 with flight number DE1708 took off from the Bavarian capital at 6:10 am.
“With Varna as a new destination, we are providing our passengers with the beautiful holiday destination of Bulgaria, on the Black Sea. Alongside Sofia and Burgas, it is already the third Bulgarian flight programme within the Thomas Cook Group Airlines”, said Tammo Gause, Commercial Director Short and Medium Haul at Condor.
Varna, formerly Odessos, is located on the Black Sea in eastern Bulgaria and is the third largest city in the country after Sofia and Plowdiw, with 350,000 residents. With its access to the Black Sea, Varna provides people who seek peace and relaxation with an ideal alternative to the highly frequented Golden Sands bordering the north of the city.
Plamen Bakalov from the Bulgarian Tourist Office is looking forward to the new Condor destination: “Bulgaria is becoming an increasingly popular holiday destination for German holidaymakers, and we are very pleased that Condor now flies to Varna from Munich too. Varna will delight holidaymakers with its beauty and international culture.”
Numerous cultural and regional treasures can be explored in Varna; the Archaeological Museum houses the oldest golden treasure in the world. Active holidaymakers have the opportunity to go on walking tours along the coast or to surf on the waves of the Black Sea. The centrally located Sea Garden, which serves as a starting point for a day trip, has enormous trees and lush vegetation that provide shade on hot summer days and a wonderful sea view at the same time.
