The third terminal is an aerial harbor of the VIP class, and accordingly, the terminal infrastructure is at the highest level. The fourth terminal, as a rule, is closed to ordinary citizens and accepts only governmental flights. The next important international airport in Bulgaria is Burgas. In the midst of the tourist season, there are additional flights serving foreigners. Two terminals are functioning successfully on the territory of the airport. One of them is practically new; it was opened only 3 years ago. On the territory of Burgas, there is a spacious comfortable waiting room where passengers can be accommodated, a VIP lounge with a high level of comfort, currency exchange offices, international bank offices, ATMs, and restaurants that offer not only colorful national delicacies, but also traditional European cuisine.
