Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport

It's the largest of Hungary's five international airports, and serves as a hub for Malev Hungarian Airlines. Several airlines provide flights to and from the airport, including Air France, Air Berlin, Brussels Airlines, and easyJet. You can find the best prices on airfare from numerous airlines when you use ebookers to plan your travel arrangements.

A cheaper option is Holiday Plus Parking, which charges 3,000 HUF for one day, 10,000 HUF for five to eight days, and 15,000 HUF for ten days. You can also park in the Holiday Parking area for 2,500 HUF for one day, 9,000 HUF for seven or eight days, and 11,500 for ten days.

Transportation to the Airport

If you don't want to drive to the airport, you can take a taxi, the M3 metro line, or public bus number 200E from the city to the airport. Depending on your location, you can expect to pay between 3,800 HUF and 6,500 HUF for a taxi ride to the airport.

Whether you want a full meal or a snack, there are plenty of dining choices at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport.

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.

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.

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.
