Jet2 has added two new routes from Glasgow to Bulgaria for the summer after the government confirmed the country will be added to the green travel list from Monday July 19.
Flights between Glasgow Airport and Bourgas offer Glasgow residents the chance to visit the best selection of Black Sea beaches, with Bourgas located close to some of the best resorts in the region including the famous Sunny Beach and Nessebar and St Vlas.
Steve Heapy, Managing Director of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “With Croatia and Bulgaria on the green list from Monday, this means customers can enjoy quarantine-free flights and vacations to Dubrovnik, Split (in Croatia) and Bourgas (Sunny Beach, Bulgaria) this summer.
“We know how huge demand there is for Green List destinations, so we made the immediate decision to add thousands of additional seats in Croatia and Bulgaria this summer. “

Bulgaria will be joined by Hong Kong on the green list, meaning Scots are not required to self-isolate on return for travelers, regardless of their vaccination status.
Croatia and Taiwan will be added to the “green watch list” which means no one needs to quarantine, but they risk turning orange. The British Virgin Islands will also turn orange, while Cuba, Indonesia, Myanmar and Sierra Leone will be added to the red list requiring 10 days of isolation in a quarantine hotel.
The news comes after it was announced that Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca would be added to the amber travel list due to an increase in coronavirus cases, just over a fortnight after going green.
The change for those returning to England, Scotland and Wales from Spain’s Balearic Islands will take place at 4 a.m. on Monday, July 19, potentially setting off a rush for holidaymakers to return to avoid quarantine.
