Flying from Ankara

Turkey’s capital city, Ankara, is served by Esenboğa International Airport. The airport gets its name from a Turkish warlord, Isen Buga, and is located seventeen miles north-east of downtown Ankara. Check with ebookers for fares on airlines that include Turkish Airlines, Atlasjet, Saudia, and Lufthansa.

Parking at Esenboğa International Airport

Parking at the airport is available in a multi-level garage or an open-air lot. Parking in the open lot is available for 24,000 TL per day, while parking in the covered garage is 29,000 TL per day. Both options are conveniently located within walking distance of the terminals. If you are in a rush, take advantage of valet parking available in front of both the domestic and international terminals and also in front of THY VIP Hall.

Transportation to the Airport

Several transportation options are available to get you to the airport in time for your flight. The Havas Shuttle offers service to the airport every half-hour between 4:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. After 9:30, shuttle times to the airport are based on flight departure schedules. Public transportation is available to the airport via bus line 442, and twenty-four-hour taxi service to all terminals of the airport is also available. Call +90 312 398 08 97 98 for information or to book a taxi.

Dining at Esenboğa International Airport

Once you’ve checked your bags and made it through security, take the time for a sit-down meal or grab a quick bite on the way to your gate. The Flags of the World Restaurant opens for breakfast daily at 11 a.m. and continues to serve through 11 p.m. If you’re running late, stop in at Burger King for a quick breakfast sandwich. Gloria Jean’s Coffee also operates two kiosks in the airport to serve your needs before you board your flight from Ankara.

Arriving at Sofia Airport

Sofia Airport is the busiest airport in Bulgaria, so expect a lot of hustle and bustle when you arrive. The airport, known locally as Letishte Sofia-Vrazhdebna, is located on Christopher Columbus Boulevard, about three miles east of the centre of the city. It serves as a hub for Air Via, BH Air, Bulgaria Air, Bulgarian Air Charter, and Wizz Air, so many flights arrive daily at Sofia Airport. Other major airlines that service this airport include British Airways, Air France, Air Berlin, and the discount airline easyJet. Search ebookers to find the cheapest flights to Sofia.

Ground Transportation Options at the Airport

You have a number of options to get from the airport to your final destination. If you have many pieces of luggage and want to take a taxi, the trip to the city centre is an affordable ten to twelve leva; however, you should only take a cab operated by one of the two airport-approved taxi companies. Both OK Taxi and the 91280 taxi company have counters at the airport where you can make arrangements for a cab with one of the English-speaking representatives. Avoid any unregulated or unauthorized taxis, as they may charge you much more than you expect to pay. A shuttle bus runs between Terminal 1 and the city centre, and public bus service on Lines 84 and 384 provides transportation to Sofia University, Mladost 1 Metro Station, and the city centre. Most major hotels also offer free shuttle service from the airport with advance notice.

Weather Conditions in Sofia

Sofia is often humid and has an average daily temperature of 10°C. The weather transitions quickly from summer to winter, with very little time that can be truly classified as spring or fall. Winters are cold and snowy, with temperatures dropping as low as -15°C. During the summer, the city experiences frequent heat waves, with temperatures exceeding 30°C. You should pack lightweight clothing if you plan to visit Sofia in the summer and cold-weather gear if you will be in the region during winter.

Things to Do in Sofia

Sofia is Bulgaria's most-popular tourist destination, so there are many things to do and see. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which is one of the country's national symbols, is a must-see attraction. The Boyana Church is a UNESCO World Heritage site and should be included in your itinerary. Using ebookers' online tools, you can find affordable accommodation in Sofia and purchase discount tickets to local attractions.
