Airports in Sofia

Sofia International Airport (SOF)

Overview

Sofia Airport was built in the late 1930s, but has recently undergone a revamp with the addition of the modern Terminal 2. The airport is a central hub for many Eastern European carriers and serves over three million passengers annually.

Daily flights are available to London as well as cities across Europe. The airport is the largest airport in Bulgaria and houses a great selection of shops and restaurants. It is also the best airport to use when visiting the Black Sea Resorts, Balkan Mountains or simply the Byzantine beauty of Sofia.

Location

The airport is situated six miles (10km) east of Sofia.

Getting to the city

Regular bus service 84 runs on a frequent schedule day and night from the bus station close to Arrivals. Passengers will have to pay extra for large pieces of luggage. The journey takes 40 minutes on weekdays, and is slightly faster on weekends and holidays. Most hotels and tourist resorts run their own airport shuttles.

Time

Local time is GMT +2 (GMT +3 from April to September).
