Arriving at Sofia Airport

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.

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.
