Police in Bratislava have implemented extra security measures at the city’s M.R. Štefánik International Airport following a suspected terrorist attack on a bus filled with Israeli tourists at Burgas Airport in Bulgaria.

“Apart from the usual safety measures, we have adopted other, adequate steps,” regional police spokesperson Petra Hrášková, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “But due to the type of measures involved, we cannot disclose or specify these,” she added. She added that the new measures would not affect departure times and that passengers would not be inconvenienced unnecessarily

Slovak travel agencies operate regular charter flights from Bratislava to Burgas, which is on the Black Sea, during the summer holiday season. Scores of Slovak tourists were reported to be at Burgas Airport when the bus explosion took place yesterday; the Foreign Ministry has said none of them was hurt.
