Perhaps the best deals for flights can be found through Skyscanner. For colleagues flying to Europe, it is less expensive to have a flight to Sofia and then take a local flight to Varna or a bus directly to Albena (more info coming soon).

For flights to Varna or Sofia you can contact our travel agent here in Montreal Galia Mardirossian at her email address and let her know that you are attending the conference.
