Sofia Airport Mini Guide

Welcome to Sofia Airport
Sofia Airport, found 7 miles from the city centre, has two terminals. The older T1 now deals mostly with budget airlines and charter flights whilst the four year old T2 handles scheduled international flights. The airport is rapidly growing in terms of passenger numbers with over 6 million passing through the terminals last year. Outside the terminals there is plenty of parking with 400 outside T1 and 820 outside T2, both parks are split into long and short term.

Sofia Airport

Getting There
32 scheduled airlines fly there providing international and domestic flights whilst 18 charter airlines bring passengers for the summer beach season and the winter skiing season.

Getting to Your Destination After Landing
There are no trains directly from Sofia Airport although a metro link is under construction. For now passengers have to take the number 384 bus to Mladost 1 metro station which links to the national rail network. Bus 84 from the airport will take you to the downtown campus of the University whilst shuttle bus no. 30 goes into the central business district and on to the busy suburb of Lyulin.

Taxis are plentiful at the airport but make sure the fare is agreed before you set off. Scams are frequent there. If hiring a car for your onward journey, the desks are found in the arrivals hall after customs and are easily spotted. You should try to pre-book your car, especially at peak times, and send a member of your group through to queue as the desks can get busy when several flights land at the same time.

Getting into the city is easy along Brussels Boulevard and exiting the city via the north is also trouble free if you follow East tangent Street which eventually arrives at the Trakya highway.

Public Information
Public information is available from the desk in the main foyer of each terminal building and the desk is clearly marked. There too, you can get information about local attractions and accommodation.
