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.
