Sofia International Airport

  bul. Brussels      (+359)2 937 2211     more than a year ago
Situated on the outskirts of Sofia in the direction of Plovdiv, Sofia airport has two separate terminals. Terminal 1 (the 'old' terminal) serves low-cost airlines Wizz Air and Easy Jet while all other flight leave and arrive at Terminal 2. Terminal 1 has some charming architectural details and a couple of shops as well as a smoking room in departures ( none in Terminal 2).
Terminal 2, the newer terminal is modern, bright and clean although rather bland. You could be anywhere in the world! Although there are modern docking tunnels for some reason ( cost?) most airlines still rely on smelly buses to shuttle guests to and from their flights. In arrivals there is a small duty free shop which is quite reasonably priced and will save you schlepping your litre of vodka around.
In the departure lounge area cafes charge outrageous prices for drinks, but there isn't much one can really do about it.
There is a multi-storey car park at Terminal 2 with over 800 spaces and it is even quite reasonable to leave your car parked there for several days.

Getting to town:
The journey into town takes not more than 30 minutes and by taxi should cost no more that 10 - 20 leva for a city centre location.
Sadly there are still regular reports of people being ripped off by the taxis hanging around the airport. PLEASE BE SURE to book a taxi at the official taxi booth inside the terminal rather than going off with one of the taxi drivers offering their services as you come out of Arrivals.
If you can, get someone to meet you at the airport. Most hotels operate a pick up service on request.
For those on a budget there are several public transport options.
There is a metro (underground) stop at Terminal 2 that will take you to the city centre in about 20 minutes. From there you can change to another line depending on where you need to get to. Bus No. 84 stops at both terminals and travels down bul.Tsarigradsko Shosse via the University to ul. Gurko in Sofia city centre and vice versa.
