Flying from Sofia
Sofia Airport Information
Sofia Airport has been operational since the 1930s, but underwent some recent expansion with the addition of the very modern Terminal 2 in 2009. Terminal 1 has a duty-free shop, food and beverage vendors, and banking facilities, while Terminal 2 offers additional shopping and dining as well as currency exchange booths. The two terminals are not an easy walk apart, but there is a free shuttle between them that runs every 30 minutes.
