BULATSA with a validated postage stamp for the 50th anniversary

A postage stamp on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of BULATSA was validated today by the Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Rossen Jeliazkov, Deputy Minister Dimitar Genovski, BULATSA Director General Georgi Peev and the CEO of Bulgarian Posts Deyan Duneshki. They put a stamp on the issue, which represents a postage stamp in a block at value of 2 leva in a circulation of 7,000 pieces. The artist is Emilio Borata and the postage stamp can be found today at the post offices in the country.

"BULATSA will also service Istanbul airport, we are much ahead in the sector from leading European countries such as Germany and France," said Minister Rossen Jeliazkov during the ceremony. "If we are to compare the minutes of delay, in our case they are close to zero. Imagine the largest airport in the world, like that in Istanbul, to be serviced by the Bulgarian Air Traffic Services Authority", added the minister.

Director General Georgi Peev thanked all former and current employees of BULATSA and announced that the enterprise has taken medium-term and long-term measures to ensure the necessary capacity in the Bulgarian airspace. They are related to both the infrastructure and the necessary human resources – air traffic controllers and engineers.

The guests visited the operational room and the training simulator, where they were shown how in reality the Bulgaria's traffic is being serviced.
