What we should know if we fly through Sofia airport for the first time?
In case you are about to fly from Sofia airport for the first time, this article is right for you! We have gathered useful information that would help you catch your flight smoothly.
First of all, the location. While some of the airports of the European capitals, such as London, Berlin, and Madrid, for instance, are within two hours (and about 20 EUR for a one-way ticket) from the central part of the city, Sofia Airport is just next to the city center.
Moreover, the airport can be reached by public transport – by bus 84 and 184 from the city center (passing through Hotel Pliska) or by metro, which goes directly to Terminal 2 at Sofia Airport. In both cases, the one-way ticket price is 1.60 BGN (0.8 EUR).
If you catch a taxi – it would cost you about 10 BGN (5 EUR) from the center and about 20 BGN (10 EUR) from the Central Bus Station.
Next, Sofia Airport has two terminals – T1 and T2 (honestly called “new” and “old”). In this line of thinking, we recommend checking carefully where your flight departs. It is always marked on the boarding pass. Airplanes of the low-cost Ryanair airline usually land and take off to and from T2, while those of Wizzair from T1 (the Old terminal).
Also, let’s say that Sofia Airport is quite small and compact, so you do not have to be much earlier at the airport. The time required to pass through all check levels is between 20 minutes and 1 hour.
Perhaps, it is important to mention that Sofia Airport offers a good WiFi connection for all passengers arriving and departing from there.
Additionally, in its area, there are also enough displays showing flight information.
