A number of Bulgarian passengers are stranded at the London Heathrow airport, their relatives inform Sunday.

The passengers, flying with the Bulgarian carrier "Bulgaria Air" have not been provided food or water and are sleeping on the airport's floor and on their luggage. The area where the Bulgarians are, reportedly, does not even have benches.

When contacted, "Bulgarian Air" representatives have stated they did not provide food and water because the passengers did not have the needed vouchers. The vouchers, however, must be distributed by the company.

The passengers are at the airport at their own expenses and it is unclear when they will be able to take off over heavy snow in London.
