The state is obliged to continue to do all the diligence necessary for the development of Bulgarian aviation, following the principles of continuity and appreciation. With these words, the Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Rossen Jeliazkov addressed the attendees at the ceremony of bestowing honorary awards to veterans from the Bulgarian aviation.
"Estimates show that air traffic will increase at a high rate, with three times as many passengers passing through Sofia Airport in the next decade. This means more tourists, a major contribution to the Bulgarian economy and the development of the Bulgarian aviation,” said Minister Rossen Jeliazkov. According to him, in order to meet this challenge, it was of great importance to train a new generation of aviation specialists.
"Starting next year at the Higher Air Force School "Georgi Benkovski" in Dolna Metropolia, students will also be trained in civilian faculties for the needs of the civil aviation, which is a step in the right direction," added Rossen Jeliazkov.
