Flying from Bucharest
Flights from Bucharest with airberlin depart from Henri Coandă International Airport (OTP), which is also known as Bucharest Airport and Otopeni Airport (its actual location is in the town of Otopeni, 18 kilometers to the north of Bucharest's center).
Henri Coandă International Airport Information
Henri Coandă International Airport was opened in the late sixties and redeveloped in the nineties to create what is now a modern and well-equipped facility. The airport offers all of the facilities you could need, including currency exchange services, ATMs, food and drink stands and a small supermarket. Car-hire desks and tourist information are also available in the airport terminals.
Getting to the Airport in Bucharest
The 783 Express bus to Henri Coandă International Airport leaves every 20 minutes from the city center during the day and every 40 minutes at night. Alternatively, you can use a combination of minibus and train to Henri Coandă International Airport instead, which involves taking a train to Bucharest Nord and catching the shuttle bus from there. Another option, if you want more flexibility, is to take a taxi to Henri Coandă International Airport, though take care to use only official taxi companies.
Arriving in Sofia
Book your flights to Sofia with airberlin and find yourself in a charming city with an appealing atmosphere, featuring a blend of old architecture and modern European tastes. With airberlin's regular flight deals to Sofia, you can discover this Eastern European gem with ease.
First Time in Sofia
Sofia is a relatively small capital and is easy to traverse, with many of the most popular attractions making their presence known with their dominance of the city architecture. Due to the abundance of Orthodox religious buildings, it is well worth spending some of your first trip exploring local cathedrals.
Students of the past visiting Sofia will find plenty to keep them interested at the National Museum of Military History. Culture lovers will not want to miss the chance to get tickets to Sofia’s National Opera and Ballet.
Making the Most of Your Sofia Holiday
Sofia has a fairly typical Eastern European climate, with temperate summers and chilly winters, so it is best to travel to Sofia for a late spring or summer holiday. If you are looking for the best deals, however, cheap hotels in Sofia are easiest to find outside of this peak season. Expect exceptional service and quality when you fly to Sofia with airberlin.
